Our Mahi

Toi Tangata is the only national organisation providing advocacy and coordination for kaupapa Māori-based approaches across the public health nutrition and physical activity sector.

We execute our advocacy and coordination role by:

  • Developing and providing our own nutrition and physical activity programmes and training opportunities to the health sector.
  • Coordinating and promoting the programmes and training opportunities of other providers.
  • Evaluating our own, and other, programmes and publishing this work.
  • Promoting the success of these approaches and identifying the best practice strategies.
  • Collaborating with research partners, tertiary institutions, community, and whānau groups to expand and grow this knowledge base.
  • Creating forums where this knowledge can be shared across the sector and across communities.
