The Paediatric Society advocates for children on all issues related to their health at a local, regional and national level. By working as a coordinated national network of health professionals the Society creates publications for the benefit of people providing health services to children and young people.  This includes providing information to the public of New Zealand on all matters that concern the health and welfare of children, and advancing public education and awareness of the science and practice of paediatrics, child health and welfare of children.
