Ngā Waka o Matariki Equally Well Māori Health Strategy 2020 - 2025

Ngā Waka o Matariki (NWoM) Equally Well Māori Health Strategy’s aim is optimal mental and physical health of Whaiora Māori and whānau. Across the health sector it is imperative to address the multiple-existing health conditions impacting adversely on Whaiora Māori and their whānau.

He W(h)akaputanga (He W(h)akaputanga o Te Rangatiratanga o Nu Tireni/Declaration of Independence of New Zealand 1835) and Te Tiriti O Waitangi (Treaty of Waitangi 1840) ground NWoM Equally Well Māori Health Strategy. Collectively, the principles are tino rangatiratanga, equity, the right to live as Māori, to be accorded the same protection as every citizen of Aotearoa and the intertwining of Māori with Whenua and Ngā Taonga Tuku Iho (ancestral treasures). NWoM represents the many in the Equally Well collaborative navigating mental and physical health equity in partnership with Māori. In the autumn of each year, NWoM Equally Well, will hui to review this strategy.
