Emergency Updates

Haere Mai, Welcome to Te Tai Tokerau PHO

Te Tai Tokerau Primary Health Organisation (Te Tai Tokerau PHO) works with local primary health care providers from Kawakawa in the Southern Bay of Islands to Te Hapua in the Far North to support the delivery of high quality primary health services.

As Northland PHOs, Te Tai Tokerau PHO and Manaia PHO (serving the greater Whangarei area and Dargaville),  work together to improve health outcomes for the district. 

Te Tai Tokerau PHO is a Primary Health Organisation covering the area in yellow (click here), within the region covered and managed by Northland District Health Board.

The enrolled population of Te Tai Tokerau PHO at July 1st 2012 stood at 61,147 patients. In January 2011 Te Tai Tokerau PHO absorbed two neighbouring PHOs, Whangaroa PHO and Hokianga Health PHO in response to a directive from the Minister of Health to reduce the number of Primary Health Organisations nationally. The geographical area covered under the umbrella of Te Tai Tokerau PHO characterises the organisation as a rural PHO. At the same time Manaia PHO absorbed Kaipara PHO, and covers the southern, more urban area of Northland.

Kai Ora Fund 2016

Kai Ora Fund Overview

Healthy Kai, Healthy Whanau, Healthy Communities

The Kai Ora Fund is made possible from funding contributed by Te Tai Tokerau Primary Health Organisation and the Far North District Council.

The aim is to support community projects and initiatives that focus on:

  • Improving food access for people in the Far North
  • Lower socio-economic communities (and in particular children), or people with food security and accessibility issues
  • Increasing the availablility, promotion or utilisation of local food
  • Increasing Community Resilience
  • Increasing local employment and business and the economic development of the region

This fund provides ‘seed funding’ and we will prioritise projects that once started can sustain themselves without reliance on continued Kai Ora funding.
