I am Donovan Raumati Clarke and chair of Te Rau Ora. I am passionate and committed to improving Māori health outcomes. My mantra has always been, people before process, get the people part right and the process will follow. At Te Rau Ora you are important to us, reach out and connect and we will come and kōrero with you.

What inspires me about Te Rau Ora is – our people and our purpose. Everyday day we go about improving the lives of people in our communities. 

The next 20 years will see a transformation into a new health system, increased connectedness, improved health and equity outcomes, leadership across the sector, and the ability to lead a new wave of innovation and change.
