Clause 40A(1)

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends subpart 5 of Part 2 of the Pae Ora (Healthy Futures) Bill. The proposed changes require the Minister of Health to prepare and determine some of the strategies with the corresponding Minister. This would allow the health strategies that are for specific communities to provide for those specific communities more effectively by requiring the Minister responsible, and consequently the corresponding agency, to provide the necessary specialist advice to do so. Doing this will give greater effect to the bill’s purpose, which is to protect, promote, and improve the health of all New Zealanders
