Much of the local public health advocacy work Toi Te Ora - Public Health Service does is behind the scenes to help ensure a healthy and safe environment for our population. Part of this advocacy work is includes writing submissions, usually to local or central government, to influence policy.
Toi Te Ora makes a submission on a particular local issue or matter under consideration when it is in the interests of improving and protecting the health of the population. A submission will generally provide evidence, experience, opinions, changes wanted and why. These written submissions are sometimes reinforced through an oral presentation by one of our team.
Below is a selection of submissions by Toi Te Ora from 2015 onwards.
