Total propostion of public health funding spend on promotional activities.

Danyl Strype made this Official Information request to Crown Health Financing Agency

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Crown Health Financing Agency should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Danyl Strype

Dear Crown Health Financing Agency,

I would like to know, for each of the last 10 years for which figures are available, what proportion of the public health budget given to the Ministry of Health by the government has been spent on promotional activities including, but not limited to; planning advertising campaigns; television, radio, and newspaper advertising; design and printing of posters and pamphlets; wages and salaries for media spokespeople and other employees whose main work hours are involved in organising and carrying out promotional activities.

Secondly, I would like a list of outside organisations that have been paid out of the public health budget for promotional activities, including but not limit to; advertising agencies, public relations consultancies, design firms, and ICT vendors.

If detailed breakdowns of MoH spending are already available on the web, in enough detail that I could answer these questions for myself, links to the websites containing these spending breakdowns would be considered sufficient to answer these questions.

Naku noa,

Danyl Strype

Dear Crown Health Financing Agency,

On May 16 I submitted an OIA request through FYI.org.nz, asking about the total proportion of public health funding spend on promotional activities. By law, Crown Health Financing Agency are obliged to responded promptly, and ought to have done so by June 14, 2017. Please provide the answers to the questions I asked under OIA, or provide an explanation of the delay.

Yours faithfully,

Danyl Strype
