Journey to better health 

The health system is changing and we need to make sure that those changes will achieve pae ora for all New Zealanders.  

Pae ora means healthy futures for all. We are working to make sure all of us can be well and healthy, that our families, whānau and our communities are well and healthy, and that our communities and the spaces we live in help us feel well and healthy. 

The Pae Ora Act (the legislation that brought about the system changes) also says we need to develop a range of strategies to help guide our health system to achieve pae ora. You can read more about the Pae Ora Act and strategies on the Manatū Hauora website.  

We know our health system needs to keep changing for the better. This work is underway and builds on what people have shared with us so far about what is and isn’t working.  

Joining the kōrero 

It is important that we hear thoughts and ideas from you, the people and communities these strategies are for, as well as experts and people working in the health sector. 

We now have five discussions open.

We are interested in what helps keep your family well and healthy and what we can do to keep it that way.

You can tell us about how having a healthy environment helps you, your family and community be well.

We want to hear from you about health reforms, what are your experiences, what’s working well, what should we do more of. And we want to know what we need to change to have an ideal system in the future.

Our first discussion is still open. You can share your experiences of good health and what helps or gets in the way of being or feeling well and healthy. And, your thoughts about the future and how we can make sure the people who come after us will enjoy good health and wellbeing. 

Continuing the conversation  

As we continue our work there will be new opportunities to share your thoughts and ideas here on Tātou. 

Remember you can visit whenever you like and as often as you like. So don’t forget to check back in with us!  

There will also be different ways to connect and share your ideas about pae ora. When they are ready, you can read about them on the Manatū Hauora website. 

If you have any questions please get in touch with us at strategies@health.govt.nz.
