(Open Letter to the Minister of Health)


Dear Dr. Clark,


Under the Official Information Act, can you please tell me whether or not the New Zealand Government has a deliberate policy of gendercide, which aims to reduce the life-span of men, relative to women and to reduce the number of men, relative to women, who are alive in New Zealand?

I note that:

  1. In the calendar year 2018, Pharmac spent $44,986,700.00 on medicines for female cancers, but only $24,390,503.00 on medicines for male cancers.

  2. Men die younger than women in New Zealand, on average.

  3. The New Zealand health system has TWO female-only specialties (Obstetrics and Gynaecology), but NO male-only specialty -- i.e. it has no Andrology wards. In fact, I doubt that you have even heard of Andrology (https://www.andrologyaustralia.org), a term which is totally absent from your website.


Yours sincerely,


Peter Zohrab


In due course, I received the following reply from Catherine Pearson, Private Secretary, Health, in the Office of Hon Dr David Clark

Kia ora

On behalf of Hon Dr David Clark, thank you for your correspondence of 20 October. Please be advised that the New Zealand Government does not have a policy of gendercide. Decisions on health policy and services are informed by evidence and achieving the best health outcomes across the entire population.

Thank you for taking the time to write.

Nga mihi
