The New Zealand Injury Prevention Strategy is an expression of the Government’s commitment to working with organisations and groups in the wider community to improve the country’s injury prevention efforts.

A key focus of the New Zealand Injury Prevention Strategy (NZIPS) is to strengthen and enhance the infrastructure that supports injury prevention activity to improve safety performance.
