New Initiatives

Health Hawke’s Bay is working on a range of new initiatives to make sure that our communities are receiving services where and when they need them.

Ka Hikitia – Health Hawke’s Bay is now well underway with implementing our new Ka Hikitia strategy with the main goal of ensuring the following:

  • Providers are well equipped to service Maori
  • Services are accessible where and when Maori need them
  • Care provided to Maori is of high quality
  • Resources are available for Maori to manage their health and wellbeing

Health Hawke’s Bay and Hawke’s Bay Rugby Union partnership with the aim of promoting better health awareness to more than 7000 registered players, many of whom are Māori and Pasifika, across 26 clubs in the region.  We know there is an equity issue as more Māori and Pasifika men will likely end up with heart problems, so we want to make it easier for them to engage with health providers
