Ngā Pou Mana was established to be a collective voice for Māori allied health professionals, and a place where resources, information and experience could be shared and where Māori allied health professionals from both the registered and non-registered health professions can develop relationships with the wider health sector, the education sector, registration bodies and professional associations.
The Executive committee believe that Ngā Pou Mana has an important role to play in monitoring and supporting Māori participation in allied health professions through workforce development and effective advice to government.
In order to achieve our goals we need a vibrant and diverse membership base and we welcome all Māori allied health workers. Our foundation members include many Māori health professionals who have established a formal roopu within their professional organisations. Membership to Ngā Pou Mana is free and Māori allied health professionals can go to our website and join on-line.
We’re counting down to our 2014 Hui A Tau on 15-17 August, and hope that existing and new members will join us at Manukanuka O Hoturoa (Airport) marae, in Auckland.There will be a registration fee of $50.00 for all members, however, for students, just a koha.
