Healthier Lives – He Oranga Hauora

2019-2024 Research Strategy

To develop Healthier Lives’ 2019–2024 Research Strategy we consulted community partners, stakeholders, policy-makers and researchers, national and international experts, and interested members of the general public.

At the heart of the strategy is a vision of Aotearoa New Zealand with equitable health outcomes and a substantially reduced burden of non-communicable diseases.

Scoping and Prioritising Research

Our 2019-2024 research portfolio is a mix of continuing and new research. To commission new research we undertook a series of scoping and prioritising exercises:

Theme 1: Healthy food and physical activity environments
Theme 2: Culturally centred health interventions for Māori and Pacific peoples
