Session Four - Health Policy Analysis and Choices, Combined Scenarios and Features of Enduring Reform Long-Term Fiscal External Panel
Page updated 24 Jan 2013
The fourth session of the Long-Term Fiscal External Panel was held at Rutherford House, Victoria University of Wellington, on Thursday 29 November.
The topic for this panel session will be Health Policy Analysis and Choices, Combined Scenarios and Features of Enduring Reform.
This was the second of two sessions looking into individual policy areas. Within each area, the long-term fiscal issues and pressures were discussed, as well as key policy choices available to address them. This session discussed the areas of health, justice, and natural resources. Policy choices were analysed in the context of the frameworks considered in Sessions One and Two, including their implications for fiscal sustainability, economic growth and efficiency, economic resilience, intra- and inter-generational distribution and other considerations, such as environmental and social considerations.
This session also considered how the individual reform options discussed in Session Three and Session Four can be best combined together, as well as discussing what the evidence tells us about what is required to achieve reform that endures over time.
An agenda and summary for the session are available below, along with a number of draft Treasury research papers that informed discussion at the session.
