Maori Health

Improving Maori Health

A role of Te Tai Tokerau PHO is as a key facilitator of relationships  between primary health care services and the population. Other key objectives over the last twelve months have been to improve Maori health outcomes by strengthening relationships and communication processes between GP practices and Iwi Maori Hauora/ Health Providers.

The overall goal of the PHO Maori Health Strategy  is to:

  • Increase ACCESS by Maori to health services
  • Increase RESPONSIVENESS by service providers to Maori
  • Increase APPROPRIATENESS of services to Maori
  • Decrease heath inequalities for Maori
