National review of 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.

In 2023 around 38,000* people died in Aotearoa New Zealand, of which up to a quarter were potentially ‘avoidable’. We establish and report on how ethnicity, deprivation, the urban/rural divide, age, employment status, disability and access to medical care impact mortality. Our current programme includes four workstreams: child and youth, perinatal and maternal, perioperative, family violence.
