Our vision

The South Island Alliance enables the regions five DHBs to work collaboratively to develop more innovative and efficient health services than could be achieved independently.

Our vision is a sustainable South Island health and disability system – best for people, best for system. The Alliance is focused on keeping people well and providing equitable and timely access to safe, effective, high-quality services, as close to people’s homes as possible.

By using our combined resources to jointly solve problems, we are better positioned to respond to changes in the technology and demographics that will have a significant impact on the health sector in the coming years.

Together we will be able to achieve better health outcomes for the people of the South Island.
