Together the best start for every child
Plunket actively supports whānau Māori to achieve and maintain their maximum health and wellbeing. We do this by providing a quality health service, and by working closely with others in the health sector.
There are thousands of people across Aotearoa working to deliver this on Plunket’s behalf. But what does this mean for Māori?
Nationally Plunket provides:
In 2007, Plunket launched the Whānau Āwhina Whānau Ora policy to provide a 10 year strategic direction to ensure Plunket is reaching Māori communities and families to effect the best possible start for every child.
In the context of the policy, whānau ora is defined as whānau Māori actively supported to achieve their maximum health and wellbeing.
