New Zealand Child and Youth Epidemiology

New Zealand Child and Youth Epidemiology Service (NZCYES) is a multi-disciplinary research team established in 2004. We are based within the Paediatrics section of the Department of Women's and Children's Health, in the Dunedin School of Medicine, University of Otago.

We collate and disseminate information on the health and wellbeing of children and young people in New Zealand. This is done mainly through the reports we produce annually on indicators of health and wellbeing for children and young people in Aotearoa with further disaggregation by District Health Board.

These reports provide the New Zealand health sector with up-to-date and accurate information about the health of children and young people. They seek to highlight disparities in child and youth health, or cases where inequities in service provision mean that children and young people are not reaching their full potential. The reports contribute to the evidence base for policy development in child youth health.
