Tohu Tipu – Health Careers for Life!

“Ka Pu te Ruha – Ka Hao te Rangatahi”

When the old net is cast aside, the new net goes fishing. This proverbial saying refers to the younger generation taking up the reigns left by their elders.

Tohu Tipu – Health Careers for Life!

The Māori health and disability workforces are a key enabler for improved health outcomes and equity for Māori.  A Māori health workforce matched to its community’s needs can make a significant contribution to addressing racism in the health system by providing culturally safe and responsive care.

In the last decade, most health and disability disciplines have experienced an uplift in the number of Māori studying, graduating, and entering paid employment, as well as an increase in Māori health practitioners in leadership roles.  However – we need more.

Tohu Tipu is a digital portal and social media campaign to encourage more rangatahi Māori into the health sector.  Explore Tohu Tipu today!
