Disease Factsheets (A to Z)

These factsheets give basic information and advice about infectious diseases.

They will be progressively replaced with links to Te Whatu Ora Health NZ or Ministry of Health websites (where possible). Diseases where the PDF is replaced with a link will have an arrow head (instead of a PDF icon).

Infectious diseases card (MED0129).Te Mana Ora | Community and Public Health produced a number of popular information sheets relating to common infectious diseases, such as chickenpox (shingles), hand, foot and mouth and slapped cheek.

These resources have been discontinued ahead of the National Public Health Service rolling out national information.

A card (MED0129 – shown) and poster (MED0130) from the Ministry of Health on infectious diseases are available.
