A health system that works for Māori, works for everyone
Te Aka Whai Ora Māori Health Authority is an equal partner in the reformed health system of Aotearoa New Zealand.
An organisation that puts a Te Tiriti lens on the delivery of all health services for Māori, we work together with Te Whatu Ora Health New Zealand and Manatū Hauora Ministry of Health.
Our role is to lead and monitor transformational change in the way the entire health system understands and responds to the health and wellbeing needs of whānau Māori.
People and whānau are at the heart of health.
The foundations of our new health system are outlined in the Pae Ora (Healthy Futures) Act 2022(external link):
