There are significant expectations in the reforms, and in the kaupapa of the NPHS, that we will embed the principles of Te Tiriti and advance equity for iwi and Māori communities. The Hauora Māori Tūmatanui Directorate is the lead in supporting the NPHS to: embed the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi; support of iwi and Māori communities to realise their well-being aspirations; rapidly expand and develop our Māori workforce; and grow and develop the capability of our non-Māori and non-Pacific workforce to provide a culturally safe service.
To succeed in these aims, Hauora Māori Tūmatanui works as a cross-functional team embedded in all NPHS Directorates and supports our kaimahi Maori through the Pā Tūwatwata model to keep our workstreams safe and to have a strong foundation of togetherness utlising mātauranga ā whānau, ā hapū, ā iwi, to build a Māori workforce that is valued, elevated, and can support the achievement of pae ora.
