Review of the Ministry of Health-funded Rongoā Sector

First Peoples health Maori Public health New Zealand

The Ministry of Health (the Ministry) has supported access to and delivery of rongoā services since 1991. The rongoā Māori health sector provides a unique, Indigenous health service to New Zealanders, based on mātauranga Māori and Māori approaches to health.

The Ministry conducted this review to identify the current state of rongoā services and the challenges and opportunities in strengthening the evidence and expanding access to rongoā Māori services in parallel with developing the rongoā Māori workforce. Specifically, the Ministry sought feedback on contracting, reporting, workforce development, impact, and benefits for clients and mātauranga Māori and Kaupapa Māori approaches.
