The Minister of Health, Andrew Little, and Associate Minister of Health, Peeni Henare, announced appointments to the boards of interim entities, the Māori Health Authority and Health New Zealand.

Health New Zealand will be the country’s largest employer, bringing together the country’s 20 DHBs, a workforce of about 80,000, an annual operating budget of $20 billion and an asset base of about $24 billion.

The Māori Health Authority will work alongside Health New Zealand with a joint role in developing system plans, commissioning for primary and community services, and will co-commission kaupapa Māori services. The Māori Health Authority will also work alongside the Ministry of Health in developing strategies and policies that work for Māori.

As part of the reform of New Zealand’s health system, two new interim entities have been established:

Health New Zealand, which will take over the planning and commissioning of services, as well as the functions of the existing 20 District Health Boards
the Māori Health Authority, which will be autonomous and able to commission services, with joint decision-making with Health New Zealand to grow kaupapa Māori services and give Māori a strong voice in the new system.
