Overview: The Ministry of Health’s work programme
The Ministry has changed the way it works to deliver the Government's priorities with a focus on sector involvement.
The priorities are:
- achieving equity
- child wellbeing
- mental health
- primary health care.
These changes will address the recommendations from the 2017 Performance Improvement Framework (PIF) review of the Ministry of Health by the State Services Commission.
We have established joint Ministry and sector co-leadership and governance arrangements to advance the Government’s priorities. These arrangements will also help us to address the Ministry’s other immediate priorities:
- maternity care and midwifery
- capital asset management
- drinking-water regulation
- DHB performance framework.
In our next update, we will let you know how work on each of the priorities is progressing.
