The New Zealand non-profit health sector
In June 2016, the Non-Profit Institutions Satellite Account: 2013 published by Statistics NZ1 identified 114,110 non-profit institutions in New Zealand, with 2,210 of these non-profits working primarily in the health sector.
The DIA Charities website shows 1,937 registered charities are working in the health sector (7% of all 27,919 charities in New Zealand) and 880 registered charities are working with people with disabilities (3.2%).
Ministry of Health figures indicate less than half of these are Vote Health funded (ie: receive funding from the Ministry of Health, DHBs or PHOs.)
The size of these non-profit providers ranges from small local providers to large national entities with strong name recognition. Similarly, the services they provide and the people they work with are diverse.
In 2016, the NGO Health & Disability Network crowd-sourced contributions for the following video compilations to help illustrate the diverse range of health and disability services that non-profit NGOs provide to New Zealand communities. We thank all those who provided us with footage.
