Purpose

As part of the Well Child / Tamariki Ora Framework Review (the review), the Ministry of Health has developed this background paper, Supporting Evidence for Changes to the Content of the Well Child / Tamariki Ora Framework, which provides background information and evidence on the proposed changes to the content of the Well Child / Tamariki Ora Framework.

In July 2006 the Ministry commenced the review of the Well Child / Tamariki Ora Framework. The aim of the review is to improve Well Child / Tamariki Ora services in order to improve child health outcomes and reduce inequalities.

The review adopts an outcomes-based approach. It is framed by the New Zealand Health Strategy (Minister of Health 2000), the Primary Health Care Strategy (Minister of Health 2001b), He Korowai Oranga: Māori Health Strategy (Minister of Health 2002) and the Child Health Strategy (Minister of Health 1998).
