Politics and Health in Aotearoa/New Zealand

Anita Bamford-Wade, David Nicholls, Helen Rose Tane, David Mitchell

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter


This chapter discusses issues relating to egalitarianism or equality. Egalitarianism in a democratic society requires a health system that can maintain, relate to, or is based on a belief that all people can, in principle, receive equal opportunity to access appropriate health services, within a community where they enjoy equal social, political, and economic rights and opportunities. Egalitarianism should be a particular focus for health services provided within a public health setting.
