The Healthy Ageing Strategy presents the strategic direction for change and a set of actions to improve the health of older people, into and throughout their later years.

The Strategy is the result of an extensive engagement and consultation process.  It refreshes and replaces the Health of Older People Strategy 2002, and aligns with the new New Zealand Health Strategy 2016.

The Healthy Ageing Strategy vision is that “older people live well, age well, and have a respectful end of life in age-friendly communities”.  It takes a life-course approach that seeks to maximise health and wellbeing for all older people.
