In July 2023, six Pae Ora | Healthy Futures Strategies were released, setting the direction for a New Zealand health system that is equitable, accessible, cohesive and people-centred.
Ngā Wānanga Pae Ora 2023 – Summary Report uplifts the voices of Māori communities, whānau, hapū, iwi, health sector groups, and community organisations who helped to shape those strategies – in particular Pae Tū: Hauora Māori Strategy.
The challenges to the health system, peoples’ experiences of it and their hopes for the future played a critical role in determining the Māori priorities for Pae Tū.
This report summarises the key themes, priorities, and reflections that emerged from wānanga with Māori communities, iwi, and Māori health sector partners around the country, led by Manatū Hauora and Te Aka Whai Ora.
These wānanga, called ‘Ngā Wānanga Pae Ora’, were the main avenue through which whānau and the Māori health sector could share their aspirations for the Pae Ora strategies. Another pathway was through the whānau voice hui led by Te Aka Whai Ora.
Ngā Wānanga Pae Ora 2023: Summary Report reflects our commitment to working with partners and audiences, to deliver strategies that honour their aspirations.
