How we can support marae, hapū and iwi
Auckland is at Alert Level 2 - Restrict
The rest of Aotearoa is at Alert Level 1 - Prepare
Te Rōpū Whakakaupapa Urutā seeks to support marae, hapū and iwi by:
Providing clear, evidence-based, information for Māori communities. We prepare these in response to issues raised internally and through our networks. Often this is also done at the request of iwi who have identified gaps in what is already available for whānau.
Support members of our rōpū to provide Māori health advice and expertise to a small number of the Government’s pandemic technical advisory groups.
Advocating for Government action (within the pandemic response, from DHB’s and across the whole of government) that is centred on equity and the principles of Mana motuhake, Mana taurite and Mana whakaora.

Through these relationships, we have been instrumental in raising and addressing a wide range of issues and concerns that impact on whānau, hapū and iwi.
We have developed relationships with the following groups:
