If you ever thought you would like to say something about the future of health in New Zealand, then there are only two days left to do it.
A link below takes you through to the Plain English submission form established to take public submissions to the Health and Disability System Review.
If you are whole food plant-based and would like to explain the health benefits of this way of life, then now is almost your last opportunity to present your views before submissions close at midnight on May 31st.
The review focuses on changes that will be put into effect over the next 5 to 10 years.
Phase One of the review concludes on May 31st. It will be followed by a period of analysis before an interim report is released between August and November. When the report is released there will be further opportunity to submit feedback on the report itself.
The online review questionnaire provides plenty of scope to put the case for encouraging health professionals to introduce nutrition (ie the WFPB diet) as a first line defence against heart disease, diabetes, several cancers, stroke and more. You can also attach documents to support your answers.
Some of the questions include:
1. What are the most important values for our future public health and disability system?
2. Think about how the best health and disability system for New Zealand might look in 2030. How would that be different from the system we use today?
3. What changes could make our health and disability system more fair and equal for everyone?
4. What are the most important changes that would make the biggest difference to New Zealanders?
There are nine questions to be answered and you can view them here and make your submission through the online form provided.
