Kaupapa Māori services, programmes and approaches will continue to play an essential role in addressing whānau wellbeing, especially when there is a greater prevalence in complex health and social issues that require holistic, culturally led, and ongoing interventions which can only be provided by a skilled Māori multidisciplinary workforce, able to sustain effective long-term relationships and links with other providers.
Māori models of practice and mātauranga Māori are integral, whilst cognisant of the levels of health and social needs that workforces and providers are addressing. More will be needed to increase and build the workforce capacity to grow the range of Kaupapa Māori options across the continuum of healthcare (e.g., primary care, whānau ora, secondary care).
Accelerating the spread of kaupapa Māori and whānau-centred services is an investment in wellness, wellbeing and preventing longer-term health inequities. Integrated holistic approaches place the needs of Māori and their whānau at the centre of quality health and disability services.
Our current programmes and priorities include:
- Mātanga Mauri Ora
- Māori Leadership Wānanga
- Pātikitiki – Māori Frameworks Symposium
- Aku tangi kōrero, Aku tangi tikanga – Kaupapa Māori Best Practice
- Te Oro Tapu – Wairua and Wellbeing
- Supporting Kaupapa Māori Integrated Primary Mental Health and Addiction Services
