O Tātou Uara - Māori Ora Mauri Ora

Hāpai Te Hauora i roto ngā rua tekau tau (20) kua huri i whakawhanake o tātou uara, Māori Ora Mauri Ora. I whakamahia e Hāpai ēnei uara hei kai tautoko, hei kai taunaki mo te Māori me Tauiwi anō ki runga te mōhio me te māramatanga ki a pūmau ki o tātou uara tikanga Māori ki roto ngā kaupapa hauora ā-iwi.

Hāpai Te Hauora over a period of 20 years has developed a value based model, Māori Ora Mauri Ora. Hāpai use it as an advocacy and skills development tool for Māori and non-Māori, recognizing the importance of embedding tikanga Māori values into the core activities of public health.

As part of the re-branding strategy for Hapai undertaken in 2015/2016, we commissioned the revitalisation of the Māori Ora Mauri Ora graphics in line with 20 years of operation for Hapai. We acknowledge the many kaumātua/kuia and kaimahi who contributed to the original Māori Ora Mauri Ora designs and whakapapa, as well at Gordan Hadfield for the imagery he designed that has been utilized up until this point. We look forward to utilizing this model to inform our work going forward. We acknowledge Geoff Popham for the creation of the revitalised designs.
