Whānau ora

This paper identifies the key strengths of the health and disability sector NGOs and the challenges and opportunities ahead for progressing towards a whānau-centred approach. Whānau Ora will require government and NGOs to examine their investment in and approaches to service delivery and philosophies. For NGOs this will mean reviewing existing service delivery models and organisational culture to determine how Māori values and aspirations for health and wellbeing are recognised.
