Auckland District Health Board is the Government’s funder and provider of health services to the 542,000 residents living in the Auckland district. ADHB is the fourth largest and one of the fastest growing DHBs in NZ, and is expecting nearly 100,000 extra people by 2030. More than 11,000 people are employed by Auckland DHB.

ADHB provides community child and adolescent health and disability services, community mental health services and district nursing.
