The Māori Health Authority and Health New Zealand have now officially launched with new names Te Whatu Ora (Health New Zealand) and Te Aka Whai Ora (the Māori Health Authority). RANZCOG welcomes reforms that aim to improve equity and outcomes for all. Now is a difficult time to be facing change. We acknowledge the magnitude of the challenge that all our members are facing, with workforce shortages and illness taking a huge toll. We appreciate the commitment and dedication in looking after women.

Te Kāhui Oranga ō Nuku is committed to supporting our members through this time of change and advocating for health reforms to improve outcomes for women and whānau in Aotearoa. The Government’s Policy Statement of Health outlines priorities for 2022-2024. It is reassuring to see that equity and Te Tiriti o Waitangi are key priorities and that long term workforce planning is also a priority. Te Kāhui Oranga ō Nuku awaits with interest Health New Zealand’s interim health plan and also looks forward to contributing to the development of a Women’s Health Strategy and we continue to call for wide clinical as well as consumer input into planning and development of the new health system.
