Strategy for Healthy Communities

Our vision is that all people living in rural Aotearoa New Zealand will achieve optimal health and wellbeing through
access to safe, effective and acceptable health services which honour the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi.

The purpose of the Strategy is to influence policy affecting the health and wellbeing of rural communities.

The unique strength of this document is that it is solutions focused and represents a united voice from across multiple rural sector organisations.
