Heather Kongs-Taylor

Programme lead, strategic development

My role is to lead and coordinate both development and delivery of our evaluation and monitoring work. I work with programme and project leads to understand their work, determine how evaluation processes can help support their decision-making processes and provide evidence of programme strengths or areas for improvement.

I have worked at Te Pou since 2012, previously working in research in evaluation in population health and supporting postgraduate courses at the University of Auckland. I have a Master’s of Population Health (policy evaluation) degree from the University of Auckland. I remain passionate about health system design and the links between social determinants of health and mental health, addiction and disability.
