Auckland District Health Board is a major provider of health care services to people domiciled in the district and to people from elsewhere.

Eighty seven percent of the Auckland DHB population live within five wards within the Auckland DHB boundary. The other 13% live in either the Manukau ward within the Counties Manukau DHB area, or the Whau ward within Waitemata DHB.

The total value of services for the Auckland DHB population is approximately one billion dollars. We received a total increase of $32m in the 2012/13 Funding Envelope, as population based funding. The increase is for a contribution to cost growth pressure of $15.2m and a contribution to demographic demand growth of $17m.
