Creating a Better Future
Creating a Better Future works with CM Sport on a number of initiatives, including providing funding and support to CM Active to deliver free and low cost physical activity programmes in Counties Manukau.
This is one part of the long-term health strategy which is aimed at addressing the significant burden of disease placed on our community by unhealthy diets, lack of physical activity, smoking and the misuse of alcohol.
By focussing on these, the strategy aims to prevent or delay the onset of Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, chronic respiratory diseases and many cancers in our community.
Creating a Better Future is also about improving the management and lives of people who are already living with these conditions.
It has been developed by the Counties Manukau District Health Board and key community partners.
