Health Promotion in Primary Healthcare

Health promotion (HP) is an essential component of Primary Health Organisations (PHOs).  The goal of the Manaia Health PHO HP plan is “to be a health-promoting PHO”.

Community Outcomes

Manaia Health PHO shares the same population and geographical boundaries as the Whangarei District Council.  In recognition of the influence the Whangarei District Council has on the determinants of health we have been working to develop partnerships with the WDC.  Submissions have been made on the Long Term Council Community Plan and the 2005 Annual Plan.  We are currently involved at various levels, with several collaborative projects with the WDC:

The second part is a directory providing basic information on each of these providers.

This report was compiled by three PHOs – Manaia Health, Kaipara Care Incorporated and Te Tai Tokerau – all recently established within Northland.
