District Health Boards are defined at meshblock level.

Changes to District Health Boards:

Otago and Southland amalgamated to form the Southern District Health Board in 2010.

Chatham Islands Territory meshblocks transferred from Hawke's Bay District Health Board to Canterbury District Health Board in 2015.
