- health promotion initiatives and activities like immunisation and screening, which are designed to prevent illness and injury
- health protection information, including warnings about disease outbreaks and environmental warnings in the Waikato DHB region
- health impact assessments, which are a way of finding out the potential effects of a policy, programme or project on the health of a population.
