Reducing demand for health care in New Zealand means targeting the growing inequities in Aotearoa. We know our members are regularly treating preventable illness and disease which have their roots in social factors such as poverty, racism, poor housing, unhealthy foods, and environments. That is why we’ve put together a new report Health Matters – Framing the full story of health. We hope it will provoke some better national conversations about health, and some long term cross-party political commitment around health policy.
