Share your thoughts on collected health and wellbeing data

What monitoring tools matter to you? Community and Public Health want to hear from you!

Community and Public Health has a role in promoting and monitoring wellbeing in the Canterbury region. Consequently they are interested in what sources of information about our population’s health and wellbeing you either currently use or would find useful.

Help Community and Public Health meet your needs by completing an online survey - it should take 15 to 20 minutes!

Share your thoughts before the survey closes on Tuesday 2nd August 2017.

Welcome to Healthy Christchurch

Healthy Christchurch is a CDHB-led intersectoral collaborative partnership based on the WHO Healthy Cities model.

The key idea is that all sectors and groups have a role to play in creating a healthy city, whether their specific focus is recreation, employment, youth, environmental enhancement, transport, housing or any other aspect of city life.

This intersectoral initiative aims at foster collaboration between organisations who have signed The Healthy Christchurch Charter.

Read the Healthy Christchurch Charter.

There are currently over 200 Charter Signatories, ranging from government agencies, businesses, voluntary sector groups, networks and residents associations. The specialist focus of the signatories ranges from children's welfare to sport, from the arts to literacy.
