Health Funding Crisis Forum (Christchurch/Main event)
Start: Saturday, July 01, 2017•10:00 AM
End: Saturday, July 01, 2017• 2:00 PM
Join the greatest local minds and activists in health to make health funding a key election issue.
YesWeCare.nz and the Public Service Association invite you to the Health Funding Crisis Forum on Saturday 1 July from 10 am - 2 pm.
Our main forum will be held in Christchurch. It will be streamed online to events in Auckland, New Plymouth, Wellington, Dunedin, Invercargill, any self-hosted events and online for those who can't attend an event or where there isn't one yet. (Want to host an event in your town?)
Afternoon tea and an optional workshop will be held from 2pm - 3pm.
The pre-election budget is out and the smoke and mirrors around health funding has cleared.
Without action, more Kiwis are going to miss out on the mental and physical health care they need, when they need it.
That’s where you come in.
We’ve invited the most active community groups, workplace and health activists to work on a grassroots election plan.
Campaigning has made mental health a key election issue. We need to keep the pressure up and make physical health funding a key election issue as well.
At the conference, you'll also:
Hear about the latest research on unmet need and health underfunding,
How campaigning made mental health a key election issue,
Learn how to get your story in the media, and
Optional: additional media training (2pm - 3pm).
We'll provide lunch. You'll provide the energy.

I look forward to seeing you there.
Nāku noa, nā.
