Each year the Auckland Women's Health Council makes written submissions and attends consultation meetings on a variety of health issues that affect the health of women and patient rights. The Council also writes many letters to health authorities and the Minister of Health on various matters. It is worth noting that the current political environment is not conducive to meaningful consultation and there are often unrealistic time-frames given for producing submissions. Submissions made by the Council include:
AWHC Submission on Adoption Law Reform
ASH Submission on Proposals for a Smokefree Aotearoa 2025
This submission on vaping is prepared by ASH. It takes a public health perspective by recognising the still high levels of smoking in the adult population. ASH identifies vaping as a strategy to reach the public health goal of achieving the Smokefree 2025 goal and to reduce the inequitable burden of disease that is experienced by Maori as a result of cigarette smoking.
