29 Sep Te Hā Oranga launches online hauora Māori directory, Hauora Hub
Te Hā Oranga has recently launched the Hauora Hub, an exciting new online hauora Māori provider directory that was developed in collaboration with the Waitematā District Health Board (WDHB), Auckland District Health Board (ADHB), Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Whātua, and a range of Māori providers.
“This website is a collective effort for cohesion among hauora providers that will benefit whānau,” says Boyd Broughton, General Manager, Te Hā Oranga. “It’s new, it’s innovative, and it will improve!”
As it is currently Mental Health Awareness Week. Boyd also acknowledges that during raised alert levels, everybody’s mental health can be impacted.
“Whether through the loss of a loved one and the inability to honour them collectively, or being unable to gather kai from Tangaroa as part of your daily or weekly hauora routine, these challenges can affect us in different ways,” says Boyd.
“This website is a collaboration of Māori providers who all have the willingness to support whānau into the right service that might support them during this time.”
What is the Hauora Hub?
A directory: The main function is as a directory of hauora Māori services in Tāmaki Makaurau that can be used by both whānau and providers.
A referral portal: It is also a referral portal via a back end portal for providers to share data and send referrals.
Future proof: It is planned to expand over the next year to include other features that support coordination amongst hauora Māori providers.
