Join with us in working to improve the wellbeing of all New Zealanders

Responding to the success of our 2014 Congress, three leading New Zealand population health organisations are working together again to organise the second New Zealand Population Health Congress to be held 18-20 April 2018 at the Aotea Centre, Auckland.

This Congress will be a further opportunity to influence the future direction of health and wellbeing of all New Zealanders and a chance for you to contribute to new thinking and action to shape our future.

Much has changed in New Zealand and the health sector since our last Congress.  More New Zealanders are living longer, happier lives, and for some the gaps are closing.  But for others, old problems remain and new challenges have emerged.  So our aims for 2018 are to learn from our recent experience and plan together for a less certain future. 

The 2018 Congress theme is 'Sharing solutions, shaping our future - Ehara taku toa i te toa takitahi, engari he toa takitini' (My strength is not as an individual, but as a collective).

There will be three major streams of work to evaluate progress and provoke further thought, based on the priorities identified from the 2014 Congress:

1. Giving all children the best start in life
2. Improving health and reducing health inequities
3. Addressing climate change and planetary health
