NZ Drug Foundation

Our vision is an Aotearoa New Zealand free from drug harm, and our mission is to transform the way Aotearoa New Zealand addresses drug issues. We influence this through our leadership by supporting communities and inspiring action that promotes wellbeing, is mana enhancing, and prevents drug harm.


The Drug Foundation works on some of the most challenging issues facing communities. Because of this, we invite people to work for us who share our vision and values, and who are committed to positive social justice outcomes.


We transform the way New Zealand addresses drugs through leadership, supporting communities, and inspiring wellbeing and mana-enhancing actions. This means that we:


·         Commit ourselves to health equity for Māori and meeting Māori health aspirations.

·         Create kind, compassionate, and people-centered responses to drug harm reduction.

·         Support communities to create solutions for themselves.

·         Respect the power of evidence to inform our own work and promote healthy public policy.
