Well Child Tamariki Ora Review Advisory Rōpū

The Well Child Tamariki Ora Review Advisory Rōpū (the Rōpū) was established to provide expert and objective advice, guidance and support to the Well Child Tamariki Ora Review.


The Rōpū held their first meeting in August 2019, and two more meetings in October and November 2019.

The 2020 meeting dates are 18 February 2020, 21 April 2020 and 16 June 2020.

Due to COVID-19, the Rōpū Terms of Reference have been extended to the end of September 2020. At this time there will be a review to determine the ongoing need for the Rōpū.


Members were selected to ensure diverse perspectives across the WCTO sector/community are taken into consideration during the Review.
