An analysis of problem gambling services funded by the Ministry. This report focuses on the economy, efficiency and effectiveness of the use of the total funding, not on the size of the funding pie itself.
The scope of this review was to:
- Examine the cost-effectiveness of existing services delivered by Ministry-funded problem gambling service providers
- Review international evidence to compare the cost effectiveness of New Zealand-based services with international problem gambling services, and best practice
- Assess whether the current service delivery structure of problem gambling Public is appropriately intervention and Health services structured to achieve maximum health gains
- Provide an indication to Ministers of whether services are being delivered in the most efficient and effective way, both to meet the Government’s objectives and to generate the maximum possible benefit for the level of expenditure.
