Deprivation and Health Geography within NZ

Sponsors and data sources

The University of Auckland's Deprivation and Health Geography research group receives funding from diverse sources. For example, the VIEW research team is entirely funded through competitive grants from public good research funders, mainly the Health Research Council of New Zealand, the National Heart Foundation of New Zealand and the University of Auckland. Financial support for specific projects has also been received from the Ministry of Health, Waitemata DHB, Counties Manukau DHB and ProCare Health. The Auckland Region Vascular Atlas was a feasibility study funded by the Auckland Medical Research Foundation that is associated with the VIEW programme.

Development of a new Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) for New Zealand was funded by the New Zealand Health Research Council. The deprivation research is informed by regularly updated administrative data from the data providers listed below. We value their cooperation because their data allow us to produce timely and accurate updates of the status of health and deprivation in New Zealand.
