DHB Nominations open 27 July
For those with an interest in Mens Health it could well be worth your while considering standing for the DHB elections.
District Health Boards (DHBs) provide (or fund the provision of) health and disability services to 21 districts covering New Zealand. DHBs are governed by boards, which consist of up to 11 members: seven elected by the public every three years, and up to four appointed by the Minister of Health.
The next DHB elections will be held in October 2007, at the same time as local authority elections. DHB elections are conducted by independent electoral officers who are appointed by the boards. The DHB’s electoral officer must be the electoral officer for one of the territorial authorities in the DHB’s district.
Check out the Ministry of Health DHB election page for further details.
