posted by WM Admin on 2018-01-24 11:17:49.538
The focus of this Health Equity campaign will foster efforts to achieve the vision of enabling all people in our community to live longer, more abundant and healthier lives by reducing health disparities experienced by Māori and Pacific communities in Counties Manukau by December 2018.
The campaign intends to reduce the health disparities experienced by Māori and Pacific communities in two key areas by:
- Fostering healthy communities, healthy people and whānau/families by identifying and testing new innovations and accelerating the spread of effective interventions to address childhood obesity disparities.
- Supporting health services by building the capability of our workforce to identify and test innovations and to apply a robust and consistent health equity approach within Counties Manukau Health, and by increasing the proportionality of our workforce to be culturally reflective of the Counties population.
