With a focus on understanding  the impacts of these health cuts on the right to health, and  communicating  this to those in charge and the wider public.

From Newtown, UCAN NZ , is becoming a nation-wide Network.

UCAN aims to:

  •         Contribute to Treaty based processes that align the rights recognised in Articles 2 and 3 of Te Titiri o Waitingi,  and universal rights to Primary Health.
  •          Gather information, personal stories and data about the undermining of Primary Health in New Zealand.
  •         Encourage and cooperate with local communities and national alliances to resist cuts that increase poverty and deprive people of their right to health care.
  •         Negotiate and debate with governance bodies and representatives responsible for ensuring universal rights to Primary Health are upheld and protected.
  •         Support those who decide to assert their legal rights to safe, equitable and responsive Primary Health Care
  •        Work towards a viable and sustainable system of public and Primary Health Care.
