Health Matters – Framing the full story of Health

29 September 2020 ASMS

Improving health outcomes and reducing demand for health care in Aotearoa means targeting growing inequities. 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.
