||Nurse - 'Help Promote Health'
||First Day Cover - 29 October 1930
|... 1d (40a)|
A new design for the 1930 health stamp was planned, but because it could
not be completed in time, the previous design from 1929 was retained with
the new inscription "help promote health" and a new date.

At the Health Department's suggestion, the proceeds of the
charity value were donated to Children's Health Camps. The Health Camp
Movement in New Zealand started at Turakina new Wanganui in 1919 and with
the objective of providing a change of environment and regulated daily
routine for children who were in any way run down in health - usually
nutrition or minor physical problems. The also provided a three week
holiday for children during the 1930s depression.
The 1930 health
stamp only sold just over 200,000 copies.
