Career: District Health Board Website

==Dedicated for anyone eyeing at a DHB job! :)==

District Health Boards (DHBs) in New Zealand are organisations established by the New Zealand Public Health and Disability Act 2000, responsible for ensuring the provision of health and disability services to populations within a defined geographical area. They have existed since 1 January 2001 when the Act came into force.

There are 20 DHBs in New Zealand organized around geographical areas, of varying population size.
