The 2022/23 Manatū Hauora | Ministry of Health Annual Report sets out who we are and what we do, how we manage our business, our progress towards our 2022–26 strategic intentions. The annual report also includes our financial statements and statement of service performance as specified in Vote Health – Main Estimates of Appropriation 2022/23 and (where updated) in Vote Health – Supplementary Estimates of Appropriation 2022/23 as required under the Public Finance Act 1989.
The Ministry has achieved a lot in the past 12 months since the reform of our health system began with the new health entities stood up including the creation of the Public Health Agency within Manatū Hauora – on 1 July 2022. The reforms support a more equitable, accessible, cohesive and people centred system that aims to improve the health and wellbeing of all New Zealanders.
Over the last 12 months, we have sharpened our focus on our key role as kaitiaki | chief steward of our reformed health system and taken a closer look at how we operate, so we are well set up to deliver on our purpose and role.
