Family planning supports health system reform

Monday, December 20, 2021

Submissions

Family Planning supports health system reform, including the establishment of Health New Zealand, the Māori Health Authority, and formalising the role and purpose of iwi-Māori partnership boards.

In our submission to the Pae Ora Bill we made a number of recommendations including:

  • strengthening the purpose statement including realising the right to health as a purpose of the Bill
  • explicitly prioritising primary health care and prevention in the health system principles
  • including a women’s health strategy as a statutory requirement

The health system must be reoriented to prioritise equitable access to essential primary care providers like Family Planning to promote good health and wellbeing for all New Zealanders.
