Although both geographically isolated and lightly populated, New Zealand provides its citizens with vocational rehabilitation services of internationally quality. Recent restructuring of public agencies have enabled service funders and service providers to be clearly delineated toward more appropriate and effective outcomes for consumers of rehabilitation and disability services. A number of structural and organizational issues arc discussed and a description of some typical services provided. Ongoing consultations and appropriately targeted and funded research are suggested as important future strategies to maintain quality services in New Zealand.
