What we do
The Environmental Health Indicators New Zealand (EHINZ) team is a research, training and consultancy group, specialising in environmental health information.
We are based at the Centre for Public Health Research, Massey University, Wellington. Our work is funded by the New Zealand Ministry of Health.
Our work has three core elements
The programme of Monitoring New Zealand's Environmental Health (MNZEH) has three core elements:
- We conduct research into the effect of environment factors on the health of the animal and human populations.
- We offer training through short courses, and face-to-face and online teaching at the undergraduate and postgraduate level. Go to the training webpage.
- We provide a consultancy service, providing data and analytical services, and dissemination of fit-for-purpose information products. Go to the consultancy services webpage.
