Māori Public Health Leadership

Whānau Whanui (Māori Public Health) is a regional public health collective consisting of Raukura Hauora o Tainui, Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Whātua, Te Whānau o Waipareira and Hāpai Te Hauora.

Through fortnightly meetings, the collective together advances public health and continues the legacy of our tupuna by creating environments in which whānau and communities thrive in the areas of: tihei mauri ora (reducing tobacco use), kia maarie (reducing drug and alcohol use), whai ao (improving nutrition & exercise) and tamariki ora (wellchild health promotion).

In an announcement made this week, from Tuesday 23rd March, Aucklanders will be able to order alcohol on demand using the new feature on the UberEats app, with Christchurch and Wellington to follow in the coming weeks.
