New Health New Zealand
Inc is an incorporated society formed in 2005 in response
to the over whelming dissatisfaction of New Zealand consumers
with their health system.
provide co-ordination between all sectors of the health industry
and health consumers.
It aims to ensure that the views shared
by members are properly represented and the industries
protected at a time when these industries are coming under
increasing attack from pharmaceutical interests and regulators
The primary purpose of NEW HEALTH is to ask what effect any health
regulation would have on the end consumer and ensure that the true,
unbiased welfare of those consumers is the primary consideration
in any health decisions. It has been formed in response to a concern
that while the regulators may claim to act in the consumers best
interest, the effect may be quite the opposite.
NEW HEALTH focuses on the facts in any given situation, not the
politics or commercial pressures. NEW HEALTH has been established
to act as an objective watchdog of health reform with a set of entrenched
principles which determine all actions of the society. In this way
all members can have confidence that the organisation will only act
in accordance with the views that have been the basis of them joining.

NEW HEALTH will continue the work that the NZ Health Trust has been
doing watching over proposed law changes and ensuring that the health
freedoms of New Zealanders are not lost. By acting together through
NEW HEALTH the wishes of many thousands of New Zealanders can be
made into a powerful lobbying force.
