September 2015 – Wellington

The 2015 National Forum entitled ‘How Good Are We: Measurement, Evaluation and Outcome’ was a response to funders’ increased focus on getting results and putting resources where they will do most good.

Presenters included:

  • Chai Chuah, Director-General, Ministry of Health
  • The Minister for Whānau Ora, the Hon. Te Ururoa Flavell
  • The Minister of Finance, the Hon. Bill English
