About us

The New Zealand Mortality Review Data Group - Te Rōpū Kohi Pitopito Mōhiotanga mō te Taka Mate (NZMRDG) – was established in 2003 to provide customised systems and research support for the former Child and Youth Mortality Review Committee (CYMRC). NZMRDG also provided systems and research report for the former Perinatal and Maternal Mortality Review Committee (PMMRC) from its inception in 2006.

The National Mortality Review Committee (NMRC) of Aotearoa New Zealand came into effect on the 1st of July 2023 replacing the former mortality review committees. The focus on Child & Youth (CY) and Perinatal & Maternal (PM) mortality continues as part of the NMRC workstream. Please click here for further information on the NMRC, their work and function.

The NZMRDG are contracted by Te Tāhū Hauora – Health Quality & Safety Commission (HQSC) to receive and manage mortality data via our custom-built systems. NZMRDG also provide epidemiological and reporting services in support of the work of the NMRC.
