DHB 2004 Scorecard

The aim of the scorecard is to promote equity and to increase the quality of child and youth health care across NZ. Although the Paediatric Society is encouraged that many District Health Boards have recognised the importance to Child and Youth health according to its third District Health Board scorecard, there are some really significant issues that are of concern across the country and many of these are outside of the control of DHBs.

We are very encouraged to see some District Health Boards are clearly grappling with the issues and have made significant advances since last year, Dr Baker said.
