Community and Public Health Advisory Committee

Rheumatic fever Initiative

The Community and Public Health Advisory Committee advises the Board about the health needs of the Waikato population and the priorities and funding required to address those needs.

Aims:

  • advise the Board on the needs of Waikato DHB’s resident population and any factors the committee believes may adversely affect the health status of that population

  • advise the Board on spending priorities

  • advise the Board on health services it has funded or provided, or could fund or provide, to improve the overall health of the Waikato population

  • advise the Board on policies it has adopted, or could adopt.
    The advice must reflect the aims and objectives of the New Zealand Health Strategy.
