Kia Ora Hauora is a Māori Health workforce development programme aimed at students and current health sector workers to promote health careers as a great career choice!
The programme has been developed in response to the national and international shortage of health sector workers - and the demand for more Māori health professionals in the sector.
Now is the ideal time to get into health - we need you now!
The programme is lead by Counties Manukau DHB and links with four regional DHB hubs (Northern, Midland, Central and Southern) who actively deliver the Kia Ora Hauora programme within their regions.
The Kia Ora Hauora website contains a range of helpful information targeted at Māori secondary school and tertiary tauira and people within the community considering a career change.
Students can access health careers information and support aimed at encouraging a health career, staying in study and understanding the variety of employment opportunities in health.
There is also information on what support is available with study and your finances. The site enables access to Māori mentors, and information and updates of regional initiatives.
