Welcome to Healthy Christchurch

Healthy Christchurch is a CDHB-led intersectoral collaborative partnership based on the WHO Healthy Cities model.

The key idea is that all sectors and groups have a role to play in creating a healthy city, whether their specific focus is recreation, employment, youth, environmental enhancement, transport, housing or any other aspect of city life.

This intersectoral initiative aims at foster collaboration between organisations who have signed The Healthy Christchurch Charter.

Read the Healthy Christchurch Charter.

There are currently over 200 Charter Signatories, ranging from government agencies, businesses, voluntary sector groups, networks and residents associations. The specialist focus of the signatories ranges from children's welfare to sport, from the arts to literacy.
