National mortality review (avoidable deaths)

Our role is to reduce avoidable deaths in Aotearoa New Zealand. We do this by analysing death-related statistics, reports and information on specific groups of deaths, such as family violence or babies and children, to reveal underlying causes.

Around 32,000 people die annually in New Zealand, with 8,000 (25 percent) considered 'avoidable.' Our research examines factors like ethnicity, deprivation, location, age and disability, impacting timely medical care access and contributing to fatalities. We also explore modifying upstream factors, such as car accidents, family violence, firearms, and health care, to prevent deaths. Our national mortality review focuses on child and youth, perinatal/maternal, perioperative, and family violence.
