Map of the Central Region
The Central Region is home to over 869,000 New Zealanders whose health care is delivered by six DHBs










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.
More information is available from the TAS website


Regional Planning

The Regional Services Plan (RSP) outlines how the six Central Region DHBs (Capital & Coast Health, Hawkes’ Bay, Hutt Valley, MidCentral, Wairarapa and Whanganui) will work collaboratively to ensure health and disability services are delivered in a clinically sustainable and financially viable way to meet the needs of the population living in the central lower North Island region.
The goal is to make sure the population of the Central Region receives good health care, in facilities that have the necessary equipment and workforce, and that support the delivery of safe, effective and efficient care.
