ARPHS’ commitment to honouring The Treaty of Waitangi

As a Crown agency, ARPHS acknowledges the partnership between Māori and the Crown under the Treaty of Waitangi. As an organisation we are committed to ensuring:

  • participation at all levels
  • partnership in service delivery
  • protection and improvement of Māori health.

ARPHS’ commitment to reducing inequalities

ARPHS works to increase health gain through a whole of population approach, but targets resources to those locations and people who will have the most to gain. ARPHS recognises the special place that Pacific communities have in the Auckland region and unique challenges they face. These challenges and those faced by refugee, Asian and other migrant groups, are approached from a framework of reducing inequalities.
