He whakawhanake i te tūāpapa o nāianei, he whakakaha hoki i te ahumahi o āpōpō. 
Building on the foundations of today to grow and strengthen the workforce of tomorrow.

Even before the pandemic, the strength of our Māori workforce has been evident, the innovation and agility of our hauora Māori partners, and how effective they are improving the health and wellbeing of their communities.

But the need is more.

A significant goal of Te Aka Whai Ora is to mobilise growth within our Māori workforce, by supporting our existing kaimahi and their wellbeing, and ensuring Māori have a clear pathway into health mahi.

To achieve this, Te Aka Whai Ora will:

  • Grow and build Māori workforce capacity
  • Focus on uplifting and maintaining the wellbeing of kaimahi Māori
  • Ensure the Māori health workforce is well immersed in mātauranga Māori
  • Invest in iwi and community led workforce solutions
  • Create bright futures and opportunities for rangatahi.
