Our work

Environmental Health Intelligence New Zealand (EHINZ), Massey University, Wellington, monitors and provides intelligence on the effect of the environment on human and animal health.

EHINZ is funded primarily by the Manatū Hauora Ministry of Health

Our work has two core elements

  • We provide a consultancy service, providing data and analytical services, and dissemination of fit-for-purpose information products.
