The New Zealand Child and Youth Epidemiology Service have provided child and youth health reports to participating District Health Boards (DHBs) on an annual basis since 2005, with reporting being timed to coincide with DHBs' 3-yearly Health Needs Assessments. Each three year reporting cycle aims to provide a comprehensive overview of child and youth health, using an Indicator Framework developed specifically for this purpose. Within each cycle, issues are covered in the following order:
- Year 1: Child and Youth Health Outcomes
- Year 2: The Determinants of Child and Youth Health
- Year 3: Chronic Conditions and Disability
In addition, each year participating DHBs select two issues for more in depth review. Issues vary from year to year but in general aim to be congruent with the overall theme of the year's report.
The New Zealand Child and Youth Epidemiology Service (NZCYES) has been hosted by the University of Otago since March 2009.
