Monitoring New Zealand’s Environmental Health
- PAWS launched
Our EHI team has collaborated with the EpiCentre to create PAWS (people • animals • wellbeing • surveillance). The PAWS programme is aimed to help protect both animals and humans from natural hazards such as floods, earthquakes, droughts and rising sea-levels. For more information, see the PAWS webpage.

In 2016/17, 2.6% of children and 3.2% of adults had an unmet GP need due to a lack of transport (about 148,000 New Zealanders). About 45% of children used active transport (walking, cycling etc) to get to school in 2016/17. For more information, see the transport indicators webpage.
