Provider of a comprehensive range of integrated health services to a high needs, rurally isolated, mostly Maori population.
Hokianga Health Enterprise Trust is a charitable organisation that was formed in 1992 as a community action response to Government policy changes that would have caused the loss of Hokianga's unique model of healthcare. As one of the first community health organisations in New Zealand, the Hokianga community has successful developed its health care service, despite operating within a very tight and challenging health funding environment. Hokianga is a Maori community, and although a provider of mainstream health services, Hokianga Health is widely recognised as one of NZ's most innovative Maori health service providers. The services are provided within a holistic Maori health framework, inspired by the actions of the Ottawa Charter, the principles of the Alma Ata Declaration, and the Principle of Subsidiarity.
