Hāpai kaimahi Haylee Koroi discusses with Dale Husband the increasing exposure of gambling and alcohol advertising to Māori youth above those of other ethnic backgrounds and the ensuing impacts on health and wellbeing.
World Health Day, celebrated on 7 April every year to mark the anniversary of the founding of the World Health Organization, provides us with a unique opportunity to mobilize action around a specific health topic of concern to people all over the world, this year being depression.
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.
