Te Pae Tata Interim New Zealand Health Plan

Te Pae Tata outlines the first steps to becoming a health service delivery system that better serves our people and communities.

This plan covers a period of reset while the foundations of our health system change. As an initial plan, it outlines what we will do differently to establish the basis of a unified, affordable and sustainable health system.

Te Pae Tata replaces 20 different district annual plans. This interim plan is designed to begin transformation while a full-scale New Zealand Health Plan is being worked on.

  • Pae ora - better health in our communities

  • Mate pukupuku - people with cancer 
  • Māuiuitanga taumaha - people living with chronic health conditions
