The Action Plan to Eliminate Family Violence and Sexual Violence sets out specific, short term actions for the next two years. The Action Plan will be reviewed and refreshed annually.

To measure progress towards achieving the 6 shifts, tukunga iho and ultimately, the moemoeā, Te Aorerekura identifies a number of impacts that we want to see along the path to wellbeing, also known as intermediate outcomes.

Wellbeing, available prevalence measures and evidence of these impacts will be brought together in a measurement framework that will include both existing and new measures.
