Whaihanga kāinga Programme – Building healthy, vibrant, connected communities

Create environments that support Māori to take more responsibility for their own health and wellbeing and address the determinants that negatively affect health outcomes.

Many of the outcomes for which Māori fare worse than non-Māori in Canterbury have a strong association with socio-economic status and lifestyle risk factors. These issues can be addressed by building vibrant, connected communities that support whānau to improve their wellbeing through healthier choices and access to healthy homes, kai and wai.
