We're rebuilding New Zealand - our transport network, our hospitals, our schools and more... After nine years of neglect there's a lot to fix - but we're getting on with the job.

We're rebuilding New Zealand

Last Sunday we announced the first part of our new infrastructure package - with a big boost for school upgrades at nearly every state school in the country.

This funding means nearly every state school will receive a capital injection next year between $50,000-$400,000 - $693 per student for most schools - to bring forward urgent school property improvements. 

The one-off cash injection will see some schools receive up to $400,000 to spend on needed upgrades that have been put on the back burner.

This investment is the biggest capital injection for school maintenance funding in at least 25 years and will have a massive impact on schools and on jobs in the trades.

We're providing better cancer care

This week saw the official opening of the independent Cancer Control Agency.

Opened by the Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Health Minister David Clark, the Agency will drive consistent, high quality cancer care across all of our DHBs, so New Zealanders get world-class cancer care – no matter where they live.

This builds on the progress we've already made to deliver better cancer care for New Zealanders, including:

Launching the Cancer Action Plan
Investing in 12 new radiation machines
Increased funding for PHARMAC, so it can buy new cancer drugs.
Modernising our approach to cancer won’t happen overnight, but with strong leadership from the Agency and a greater focus on prevention, screening and treatment, we're making progress.
