About Health New Zealand and our NGOs

Health New Zealand is the government organisation that runs the health system in Aotearoa New Zealand. We deliver hospital and specialist services across the country and fund non-government organisations (NGOs) to deliver primary health, well-being and community-based specialist services.

We also provide specialist consultation and liaison services to emergency departments, NGOs, general practices and primary health organisations.

NGOs and community providers are invaluable to our local communities, seeing around 40 per cent of all people seeking mental health and addiction support. Many receive government funding from Health NZ, delivering crucial peer/lived experience-led and specific Maori and Pacific cultural services in our communities. NGOs provide community health and well-being support, primary level mental health and addiction services or specialist services including children and young people, community crisis respite and residential.
