Health promotion for primary health care
Health promotion is an important aspect of implementing the Primary Health Care Strategy and contributes to a population-based health approach in primary care.
PHOs are funded to provide appropriate health promotion activities within their communities. PHOs are required to meet certain reporting criteria to be eligible for Health Promotion capitation based funding.
Health promotion funding is calculated based on $2.17 per enrollee with different multipliers for differing groups of need. The multipliers applied are shown in the table below.
|Non Māori or Non Pacific People||Deciles 1–8||1.0|
|Non Māori or Non Pacific People||Deciles 9–10||1.2|
|Māori or Pacific People||Deciles 1–8||1.2|
|Māori or Pacific People||Deciles 9–10||1.4|
Note: This capitation funding is not available to those PHOs that have not signed up to the health promotion initiative or applicable to enrolees who have a High User Health Card.
