Pae Tū: Hauora Māori Strategy cover

As part of the health system transformation a range of strategies have been developed to help guide our health system to achieve pae ora, healthy futures. One of those is Pae Tū: Hauora Māori Strategy. It has been produced by Manatū Hauora and Te Aka Whai Ora.

A Hauora Māori Strategy is critical to ensure the reformed health system upholds Te Tiriti o Waitangi, improves equity and enhances long-term health outcomes for whānau Māori.

Pae Tū: Hauora Māori Strategy guides health entities to uphold Te Tiriti and achieve Māori health equity, while the New Zealand Health Strategy takes a whole population focus and addresses broader systemic issues.

Pae Tū: Hauora Māori Strategy will guide the health system’s response to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and Māori health equity, alongside the New Zealand Health Strategy.

Each strategy builds on and reflects Te Tiriti obligations, from its unique population perspective.

Pae Tū: Hauora Māori Strategy is an interim step ahead of a new and more comprehensive strategy to be released in 2025. By then, the foundations of the new system will be in place and Whakamaua: Māori Health Action Plan 2020–2025 will be fully implemented.
