Over the past two years, the Government has invested significantly in improving access to primary care and mental health and addiction services. There have also been significant investments in services, improved conditions for the health workforce, and health infrastructure. The Health and Disability System Review, which recently published its interim report, also provides an significant opportunity to shape the future of our health and disability system so that it continues to deliver excellent prevention and care to all New Zealanders. This will involve thinking and acting differently to address ongoing inequities.

The Ministry of Health's upcoming forum is an opportunity for the sector to come together to reflect on our successes, address the challenges facing the health and disability system today, and shape efforts to the agenda to deliver a strong and fair public health and disability system.

Those attending the forum will hear from the Minister of Health, Associate Ministers of Health, and members of the Health and Disability System Review. There will also be key note speeches and presentations from community groups at the forefront of initiatives to improve health outcomes and achieve equity.

Over two days, participants will also have the opportunity to take part in concurrent sessions. These sessions will enable participants to discuss key areas of the Ministry's work programme, possible solutions to system issues, and to receive and provide immediate feedback.

Registration for the forum is now open on the forum website.
