Tui Ora - Covid-19 Community Response

Collaboration and urgency has been key to the proactive Covid-19 response by Tui Ora, key agencies, iwi and the broader Taranaki community.
Between April - May 2020 a number of Whānau Ora and health initiatives were implemented with urgency, all working toward the outcome of ensuring whānau Māori and the broader community had access to important hygiene goods, Covid-19 testing, flu vaccinations as well as support with other health and wellbeing services.
