Today Hāpai Te Hauora supported the launch of a petition urging the Prime Minister to double the investment for drug-related treatment and harm reduction initiatives in Budget 2019. This would see $150 million extra allocated for the under-resourced drug harm reduction sector.

Response from the National SUDI Prevention Service on the safe use of wahakura

Recently we have been referred questions concerning the use and safety of bumper pads in wahakura (flax woven bassinets). Hāpai Te Hauora holds the National Sudden Unexpected Death in Infants (SUDI) Prevention Coordination contract; the best evidence available to Hāpai tells us that wahakura are safest without bumper pads.
