The Ministry of Health are making moves to regulate vapes, e-cigarettes and heated tobacco products. This is supported by Hāpai Te Hauora who hopes that the Ministry do their best to provide effective and sustainable regulation.
Every year more than 500 New Zealanders die by suicide, making it the third most common reason why people die younger than expected. It doesn't have to be this way, and our focus is on motivating teams and systems to do everything possible to prevent suicide.
Hāpai are leaders in Public Health, Policy, Advocacy, Research and Evaluation and Infrastructure services.
We hold a number of Ministry of Health contracts both regionally and Nationally.
We provide a strategic focus that is underpinned by evidence based research for the advancement of health and well being for communities.
The Mission of Hāpai is to increase opportunities for Māori to enjoy good health and to be sustained by healthy environments.
