Canterbury Health in All Policies Newsletter: August 2021

Wednesday, August 4, 2021   Posted in: Newsletters By: Administrator With tags: health in all policies, cycling, health determinants, Courses, built environment, consultation, Climate Change, health, environment, resources

Matariki begins with the rising of the Matariki star cluster - officially on 2nd July this year. Matariki has been an important aspect of Te Ao Māori for hundreds of years. It signals the new year for Māori and is a time of renewal and celebration for all New Zealanders. As the current Getting Through Together and ‘All Right?’ campaign reminds, Matariki is a time to reflect, celebrate and aspire.  

This has certainly been a time to reflect, celebrate and aspire following Evon Currie’s retirement from Community and Public Health (CPH) in June. Her leadership paved many ways for Health in All Policies (HiAP) to grow in Canterbury. Having managed the CPH HiAP team I know the importance of this approach to our work here and in all your sectors, and the benefits of the relationships that working in this way brings.  

Times of change bring opportunity. The health sector reforms are focused on delivering greater health equity, a key underpinning of the Health in All Policies approach. As the new structures begin to take shape, staff at Community and Public Health remain committed to work with our partners to seek synergies and encourage decisions to improve health and wellbeing as their ultimate goal.

Health in All Policies (HiAP) is a structured approach that systematically takes into account the health implications of decisions, seeks synergies, and avoids harmful health impacts, in order to improve population health and health equity.

Canterbury's Health in All Policies Team is based at Community and Public Health, part of the Canterbury District Health Board.
