Intersectoral Community Action for Health


In 2001 a cross sectoral approach to addressing health inequalities was adopted by the then South Auckland Health, just prior to the establishment of the District Health Boards. An emphasis on working intersectorally was as a result on an increasing recognition that key determinants of health largely lie outside the health sector and therefore require intersectoral planning and action to address them.

This has provided Counties Manukau Health with the rationale and impetus to work in collaboration with other sectors/agencies to improve health outcomes.


All intersectoral projects undertaken by CM Health target high need populations and aim to address key determinants of health such as housing, education and welfare.
