The New Zealand Health Innovation Hub is a partnership between four of the biggest DHBs: Auckland, Canterbury, Counties Manukau and Waitemata. We are also supported by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.

We work alongside DHB innovators to develop new products and services that have commercial potential; are based on intellectual property; and improve health outcomes.

We provide access to current information about the health landscape, market validation, potential investors and partners.
