Health Action Zones (HAZs) are a central part of the new health policy being forged in Britain in the late 1990s. They are part of a family of regeneration initiatives that are central to the government's policies of tackling social exclusion and modernising public services. In particular, health action zones are expected to be ‘trailblazers'; pioneering innovative approaches to reducing health inequalities, and developing services that are more responsive to patients and users.
