Some of our greatest strengths as a community come from our shared ancestry, and our ability to come together in difficult times. Manaaki Matakāoa supports self-determination of our collective health destinies through preventative action, community cohesion, inclusiveness, and quality health information.
Our Oranga Kōpara team is responsible for leading out community-level health promotion through events that disseminate quality health information, promote programs being run by health, sports and social service providers, supporting access to vaccines and carrying out our community screening program for early detection and intervention of illnesses. Our event themes respond to our community’s direction provided through local surveys.
