Tatau Pounamu Manawhenua Advisory Group
The Tatau Pounamu Manawhenua Advisory Group is made up of the Manawhenua health advisors mandated by the Papatipu Rūnanga: Te Rūnanga o Makaawhio and Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Waewae as the Treaty of Waitangi partners to West Coast DHB. Ngā Maata Waka o Te Tai o Poutini is also included in this forum.
Tatau Pounamu Manawhenua Advisory Group works with West Coast DHB to:
- Develop and implement strategies for Māori health gain.
- Provide health and disability support services consistent with Māori cultural concepts, values, and practices.
- Support Māori aspirations for health and to reduce inequalities between Māori and other New Zealanders for whānau, hapu, iwi, and Māori communities.
The group meets the West Coast DHB every six weeks and works closely with the Māori Health General Manager, West Coast DHB General Manager, and Planning and Funding Team Leader.
