A workforce centred on Wāhine Māori & their whānau
Te Rau Ora has the privilege of entering into an innovation of work beside Ngā Maia o Aotearoa (Māori midwives) and Counties Manukau DHB to develop the evidence base that centres on Māori women, babies, children and whānau to inform workforce development priorities. With the Government priorities of addressing Māori inequities, the need to address child poverty and the continuation of need to meet the aspirations of whānau. This collaborative of work will connect directly with Wāhine Māori, our Māori practitioners, leaders and stakeholders. We look forward to keeping you up to date as this kaupapa emerges in placing Wāhine Māori and their whānau at the centre to achieve Pae Ora.
