Hauora Arotahi - Māori health areas of focus
We want to listen to what whānau believe are the most important health areas for them today, so that we can respond to their concerns.
This year we're asking whānau and communities to tell us if what they think is important has changed.
We're committed to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and aspire to being a great Tiriti partner. To guide us on this journey we have a Māori Responsiveness Strategy – Te Whaioranga.
Within that strategy, Hauora Arotahi (Māori health areas of focus) guide our choice of health promotion programmes and funding for Whānau Ora Collective-led whānau programmes.
Since 2016, Hauora Arotahi have also guided our medicines funding decisions, alongside clinical evidence of Māori health need. Both of these ways of addressing Māori health need form part of our decision-making Factors for Consideration.
Our aim is to work in health areas identified as the most important by whānau.
We're open to new ideas, examples, methods of engagement and communication, and ways of working. We wish to connect the Hauora Arotahi with the experience of whānau and communities.
We'll be seeking community input to this work until early 2018. We welcome the opportunity to participate at a hui in your community to listen and get input from whānau.
You can also provide feedback to us on this work at any time.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
What health issues are you most concerned about? Let us know.
We'll use the responses we receive to help focus our mahi in those health areas that matter most to you and your whānau.
