New Zealand’s health system is in for a significant shake up, TVNZ reports. Scrapping district health boards in favour of a national organisation, creating a new Māori Health Authority,and a new public health agency, are just some of the major overhauls. The changes were announced by Health Minister Andrew Little, following a scathing report which found New Zealand’s health system was under “serious stress”, lacked leadership and did not serve Māori or people with disabilities well.
