Nau mai, haere mai
Te Aka Whai Ora and our partner Te Whatu Ora represent a new and exciting future for healthcare in Aotearoa New Zealand.
We are working together to transform our health system, because every person deserves to receive quality care that meets their needs. For too long, Māori have been left behind. A more equitable system will uplift the health and wellbeing of not only whānau Māori, but of all New Zealanders.
We advocate for Māori health, connect whānau with the health system, and fund solutions that work for Māori communities. This mahi is critical. Let’s close the gaps and improve the lives of all those who call Aotearoa New Zealand home.

Aotearoa New Zealand’s health system has undergone a massive change — and a major reason for this change was to address decades of inequity and poor health outcomes for whānau Māori.
