Hauora Tūmatanui, Taupori - Public & Population Health
We work with our regional teams, Māori partnerships, and various health services to enhance the standard of public healthcare and reduce health inequalities across Aotearoa New Zealand.
This mahi includes:
- quality assurance: ensuring public healthcare meets high quality standards.
- equity focus: making healthcare accessible and fair for everyone in the community.
- local engagement: partnering to fund and deliver services that address specific local health requirements.
We actively seek input from hauora Māori partners for community-based health initiatives, through:
- Proposal submissions: hauora Māori partners are invited to contribute proposals for community-focused health initiatives.
- Recent funding: our latest funding allocation has been for critical areas such as elder housing, mobile health units, and dental care for mothers and infants.
- Service availability: new services funded through this initiative began operating from 1 July 2023.
