Mana Tane Ora o Aotearoa

Tāne Ora Environmental Scan

The Tāne Ora Environmental Scan is being conducted by Karake Consultancy on behalf of Mana Tāne Ora o Aotearoa. The purpose of the environment scan is to provide a general overview of the current programmes used throughout New Zealand that deliver Tāne Ora focused services.

Tāne Ora focused services are defined by the following:

  • Tier 1: Dedicated services specifically focused on Tāne Ora.1
  • Tier 2: Services that provide specific Tāne Ora programmes within their wider service provision.
  • Tier 3: General men’s health provision with a focus on Māori.

The environment scan will be used as a foundation document for Mana Tāne Ora o Aotearoa for the promotion of Tāne Ora focused services. The survey is intended to highlight the exceptional work being undertaken across Aotearoa, in our communities, our regions and our nation. An analysis of the survey will be submitted to the Ministry of Health, and be available from this website.

Your organisation is recognised as a leader in Māori Health Service Innovation, maintaining a strong commitment to providing programmes and services that address the needs of Māori men and their whānau. We value your commitment and experience, and hope that you will be willing to share an overview of the programmes and services you have in place that are targeted at and/or delivered to Māori men. Below is information on the online survey, which should take you no more than 10 minutes to complete.
