This publication looks at how district health boards, primary health organisations and general practices are working to achieve the prevention-focused health targets:
- Increased immunisation
- Better help for smokers to quit
- More heart and diabetes checks
Meeting the health targets requires a whole-of-sector commitment to achieving target goals, strengthening relationships and finding better ways of working between district health boards and the primary care sector.
The 12 case studies in the booklet describe some of the initiatives, innovations, organisations and people that have contributed to sector improvements made in these three health targets.
