Driven by kaupapa and guided by Māori voice and aspirations, Te Aka Whai Ora seeks to enhance Māori
rangatiratanga for Māori over hauora Māori. We empower our communities to take control of their own health
and wellbeing through system-wide, sustainable change.
Firmly grounded in Te Tiriti o Waitangi principles, Te Whatu Ora serves all New Zealanders. Through
integration and collaboration, we’re building a health system underpinned by partnership, equity,
sustainability, whānau-centred care, and excellence.
