He Kaupapa Waka.

He Kaupapa Waka has an overarching message of investment in people and their communities to build healthy environments that facilitate, support, and meet their identified needs. 

The wellbeing of whānau and the elimination of family violence / sexual violence will progress with a significant increased focus on prevention. 

The report includes statements and recommendations on what needs to change to strengthen the health and disability sector’s response to family violence / sexual violence. The overall direction of the report and its recommendations align with the direction of the Health and Disability System Reforms towards services that are designed and delivered in support of equity and in line with our Te Tiriti o Waitangi obligations.  He Kaupapa Waka has an overarching message of enabling communities to have the power and ability to work with health services in designing, leading and delivering solutions that meet their needs and aspirations and effect change alongside broader social sector responses.   

The report and its recommendations also align with the focus of Te Aorerekura, the National Strategy and Action Plan that sets out a new collective path for government, tangata whenua, specialist sectors, and communities to eliminate family violence and sexual violence.
