Māori and Pacific Health

WellSouth Primary Health Network is committed to achieving equitable health outcomes and promoting cultural wellbeing for communities across the Southern region. A key to this is working together with iwi, hapū, whānau, and Māori and Pacific providers who deliver health care services.

Under the Pou Oraka Matua/Director of Māori Health and Equity sits the Manaaki Welfare Team of Māori and Pacific Navigators and a Project Manager to facilitate various equity projects from the primary and secondary health care sectors. This team also provides support to general practices in ensuring equity targets are being achieved.
