  • improving access to high-quality, integrated primary healthcare for low income, Māori, Pacific and other high-needs populations
  • empowering consumers to manage their mental/physical/psycho-social health needs, following the principles of Te Whare Tapa Wha
  • advocating for Rangatahi (youth) and Kaumatua (older people) in the communities in which they live
  • achieving positive outcomes for people and their whanau enrolled with HPHO practice teams (Matua Rōpu Hauora)
  • reducing health and social inequities for Māori through outcome focussed programmes
  • recognising the importance of a whole of system approach to improving health, aligning with the Ministry of Health’s strategy to “Live Well, Stay Well, Get Well”
