The Children’s Commissioner says the review of Well Child/Tamariki Ora is a chance to make the programme one of the best things done for kiwi kids.

The review was announced this week to district health boards by the new Director-General of Health Ashley Bloomfield.

The programme is a series of health assessments and support services for children and their families from birth to five years.

Andrew Becroft says he has been talking about the impact of early intervention for decades now, and Tamariki Ora allows for constructive and positive intervention at the earliest stages of a child’s life.

He says it needs to get to every New Zealand child, rather than just 95 percent as it is now.

He applauded the Ministry’s intention to partner with Maori on the review, and to also work with the Education Ministry and sector.
