Whānau hauora , Whānau health
Whāia te iti kahurangi ki te tuohu koe me he maunga teitei
Pursue the lofty heights of our forbears, should you succumb, be it to a lofty mountain
Kia ora and welcome
This website is for whānau striving for te whaioranga (optimal wellness). And it’s for all the people who support you in that important journey.
It aims to provide the information you need to persist and get through the hard times that come with bettering one’s self. It also aims to provide the information you need to recognise and celebrate success.
We all have a part to play in ensuring Māori whānau live longer and enjoy a good quality of life. It’s our shared, collective responsibility.
At PHARMAC, we recognise that Māori whānau hold a wonderful and unique place in New Zealand society – you are tangata whenua of Aotearoa, New Zealand.
We are committed to Whānau Ora and Te Tiriti o Waitangi, particularly its article two references to tino rangatiratanga (independence).
This website is part of that commitment.

The family will be forever healthy
