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 asked whānau and communities to tell us if what they think is important has changed.
We'll use the responses we received to help focus our mahi in those health areas that matter most to you and your whānau.
About Hauora Arotahi
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've gathered information from communities about this work. We're now considering all the information we have. Over the next year, we'll report back to communities about how that will affect our work.
You can also provide feedback to us on this work at any time.
