Kaitiaki Ahurea

The origins of Kaitiaki Ahurea are from our Māori – Public Health Work as Te Rau Matatini.

Kaitiaki Ahurea was remastered into an NZQA accredited short course to improve health and social care workforces’ engagement in Māori Communities. Thus, creating community-oriented Māori health approaches.

Now delivered in a high energy two-day wānanga followed by a one-day assessment wānanga, non-Māori and Māori workforces can expect to increase their knowledge and understanding of health topics and strategies from a Māori cultural context and establish tools and skills to implement effective wellbeing strategies appropriate for Māori communities they work in.

Extremely popular for workforces with interests in improving Māori health at the community level, it is a steppingstone in identifying community needs and strengths and opening one’s mindset to put actions into practice that will benefit Māori whānau.
