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.

Create forums where this knowledge can be shared across the sector and across communities.
