NZMA Welcomes New Healthy Homes Standards

The New Zealand Medical Association welcomes the new Healthy Home Standards announced by the Government, that sets minimum requirements for warm and dry rental properties.

"NZMA’s submission aligns well with the new standard and most importantly we see this as a step in the right direction to improving the health and well-being for our patients living in rental properties and especially those who are admitted to hospital for ‘housing-sensitive hospitalisations’," says Dr Kate Baddock, Chair of the New Zealand Medical Association.
