Pae Ora | Ministry of Health has released six strategies that set out its health service priorities and system improvements over the next 5 to 10 years. The strategies set the direction for a health system that aims to be equitable, accessible, cohesive and people-centred.

New Zealanders said, during consultation about the strategies, that they want to be able to get and experience quality health services, no matter who or where they are.

The six strategies are:

  • The New Zealand Health Strategy
  • Pae Tū: Hauora Māori Strategy
  • Te Mana Ola: The Pacific Health Strategy
  • The Women's Health Strategy
  • The Health of Disabled People Strategy
  • The Rural Health Strategy.

This is the first time Pacific people, rural communities and women have had their own health strategies. The New Zealand Health Strategy, the Health of Disabled People Strategy and the Hauora Māori Strategy have been updated following community engagement.

The Health of Disabled People Strategy is published in a provisional form to allow for further targeted engagement with the disability community and further shaping of priorities.
