Central Region Equity Framework

The Central Region District Health Boards have developed a Central Region Equity Framework to promote equity of health outcomes for everyone receiving health services in the Region.

The Framework aligns with the Ministry of Health’s “Equity of Health Care for Maori: A framework” and retains the focus on leadership, knowledge and commitment in the Ministry framework because they are fundamental attributes that will advance equity of health outcomes.

Action Plans have been developed and regional and local activities for strengthening equity outcomes have been included in Regional Services Plans and District Health Board Annual Plans to enable Central Region DHBs to fully implement the Equity Framework.  

The Framework contains four key sections – capability, strategic planning, procurement, and monitoring and evaluation and provides an equity lens, at a high level, for activities in each of these areas.
