Disease Factsheets (A to Z)

Find out basic information and advice about a range of common conditions of public health importance in these factsheets.

Changes to the Community and Public Health Disease Factsheets

These factsheets will progressively be replaced with links to the NZ Ministry of Health website (where possible) from November 2018. This is since the details in most of the factsheets is sourced from the Ministry of Health.

Diseases where the PDF is replaced with a link will have an arrow head (instead of a PDF icon).
