Make It The Norm
Health equity in Aotearoa has been left unaddressed for far too long.
The longer we ignore it, the more urgent the issues will become and the greater the resources that are lost in terms of human potential and lives. The RACP is committed to making health the norm for all, now.
Our members look beyond a 3-year election cycle for the resources to make and sustain the changes urgently needed to realise the promises of Te Tiriti o Waitangi — equity, active protection and tino rangatiratanga for all people of Aotearoa. We recognise that good health is supported by much more than infrastructure or staff — we need to look at the factors that promote healthiness and work outside our traditional borders to advocate, collaborate and create.
The College's vision for health equity in Aotearoa NZ is enduring. We want to see a more fair and just society for the year when Aotearoa commemorates the bicentennial of Te Tiriti o Waitangi in 2040.
Urgent action is needed to address the supply, conditions and fairness of housing.
New Zealanders need a fair income, legislative change and their unpaid work valued.
Our whānau need support in all areas of care to improve their health and wellbeing.
All whānau should be enjoying the highest possible standard of health and wellbeing.
