Whānau ora

Healthy families


The refreshed Māori health strategy, He Korowai Oranga (Ministry of Health, 2014) defines whānau ora as Māori families supported to achieve their maximum health and wellbeing. It aims to support families to be self-managing, leading healthy lifestyles, confidently participating in te ao Māori and society. This section reports selected findings from Te Kupenga 2013 on whānau well-being and support and engagement with Māori culture and reo.
