A growing and ageing population and an ageing health workforce creates challenges for New Zealand to have the right health professionals in the right place, at the right time for our future needs.
Health Workforce New Zealand’s mandate is to build a sustainable, fit-for-purpose health workforce. Our attention is on health professional education and training, training investment, removing barriers to innovation and projecting future workforce supply and demand.
Achieving this needs the commitment and input from the health sector. This publication shows the involvement of professions and health-sector organisations working together for a common goal.
