The Healthy Eating – Healthy Action: Oranga Kai – Oranga Pumau: Strategy framework (HEHA Strategy) provides an integrated policy framework to bring about changes in the environment in which New Zealanders live, work and play as this relates to nutrition, physical activity and obesity. It is the Ministry’s response to three of the 13 priority population health objectives in the New Zealand Health Strategy (Minister of Health 2000).
This Implementation Plan is based on, and is an extension of, the HEHA Strategy and associated background paper.
Key points from the Strategy are provided in this document but the full text of the strategy and background paper should be referred to for a detailed analysis. The Implementation Plan has an outcome focus and provides a set of actions based on the HEHA Strategy. Evidence for action is presented. The reducing inequalities intervention framework has guided the development of this plan.
