After a number of years without, Hāpai Te Hauora in collaboration with Māori Leaders in Tobacco Control, hosted a national Hui Māori with one focus point being the consultation document for a Smokefree Aotearoa 2025 Action Plan in Te Whanganui-a-Tara last month.
Here at Hāpai our mission statement is "Oranga Whenua, Oranga Tangata" - This means healthy environments sustain healthy lifestyles. During the month of April, World Earth Day was observed. In honour of this kaupapa, we talked with Haylee Koroi – a taiāo and kai ora advocate in Tāmaki Makaurau.
This is an opportunity to join the team at Hāpai Te Hauora, the largest Māori public health organisation in Aotearoa as a Māori Researcher within our Research and Evaluation Team. You will be joining a team committed to supporting whānau, hapū and iwi to determine and achieve wellbeing.
