Advocacy

Hauora Taiwhenua Rural Health Network is committed to listening, questioning, and having conversations about issues that impact on the health and wellbeing of rural health and rural communities.   

Through our Chapters and their representatives on Council, we identify key issues, source data and information. 

Together, we have established a reputation for being a credible, solution focused voice of rural health. This provides a strong platform for discussions with Government and the Ministry of Health, Immigration, and Business Innovation and Employment. It enables us to take a broad and inclusive view of health and wellbeing in rural communities to health sector advisory groups and committees, government working groups. We are often invited to cast a rural lens across Government initiatives or make submissions on policy or decisions that impact on rural communities.
