Hui Whakaoranga is a series of hui focused on taking a generational approach to Māori health development and is a key part of the ongoing commitment to Whakamaua: Māori Health Action Plan 2020-2025.
These hui provide a significant opportunity for iwi, hapū, Māori communities and the health and disability sector to connect, share aspirations, and set out milestones for achieving Pae Ora – healthy futures for Māori. This also involves exploring how to continue building effective partnerships and networks.
Hui Whakaoranga was re-established in 2021 and included four kanohi ki te kanohi regional hui between May and June 2021 followed by a virtual hui on 20 July. The intention is to continue Hui Whakaoranga until at least 2025.
This publication provides a high-level summary of the themes, engagement, and kōrero from Hui Whakaoranga 2021. It seeks to accurately reflect the voices of participants in order to capture the key learnings of Hui Whakaoranga 2021 and to provide a record of these engagements.
Reestablishing Hui Whakaoranga is a key action under Priority Area 4: Māori health sector development in Whakamaua.
