The Paediatric Society believes all tamariki and rangatahi should, by right, attain optimal physical, mental, and social health and wellbeing. By working as a coordinated national network of health professionals the Society dedicates its efforts and resources to collaborating and making official submissions to both Government and Non-Government organisations on issues that will impact on the health and wellbeing of tamariki and rangatahi.
