1.  Recent developments in the funding and organisation of the New Zealand health system 
During the 1990s, the New Zealand health sector went through a decade of turbulence with a series of major structural changes being introduced in a relatively short period of time. The new millennium brought further change, with the establishment of 21 district health boards and the restoration of a less commercially-oriented system. The sector now appears to be more stable. However many incremental changes are in train and there has been considerable turbulence below the surface as key players jostle for position. This paper reports on some of the recent changes that have occurred in the restructuring of the New Zealand health system. Three issues are discussed: the devolution of funds and decision-making to district health boards, developments in primary health care, and the position of the private health insurance industry.
