This output plan is a performance agreement between the Minister of Health (the Minister) and the Director-General of Health, and includes the work programme for the Associate Ministers of Health. It covers the financial year ending 30 June 2019.
The plan is designed to show the Ministry of Health’s (the Ministry’s) commitment to deliver a range of ‘outputs’ to the Minister and Associate Ministers of Health, encompassing:
- a portfolio of strategic priorities including medium-term flagship priorities that the Government has identified for the health and disability sector
- other supporting priorities projects currently being undertaken
- the delivery of the Ministry’s core functions, with accompanying key performance measures
- our performance improvement work programme to lift our core capabilities to address the findings of the 2017 Performance Improvement Framework (PIF) review.
The plan is designed to demonstrate that New Zealanders will have access to strongly and strategically provided public health services which are well funded by the Government and that will deliver high-quality health outcomes.
