Ngāti Hine Health Trust Vision
Kia whakamana te whānau kia anga whakamua ki to oranga. Ko Ngāti Hine Pukepuke rau e kōkiri ana.
Kia mātāmua te noho a Ngāti Hine Health Trust i roto i ōnā pānga katoa. Ki reira, hīkina ai te mānuka, ao noa pō noa.
The Ngāti Hine Health Trust (NHHT) has its origins in the Motatau Marae Komiti which, in 1987, formed a health sub-committee to address health needs of the Motatau community.
From 1990 to 1992 the Marae Komiti obtained funding from the Health Research Council to train Kaiāwhina and carry out a Ngāti Hine household health status survey. A second allocation of funding from Te Hotu Manawa Māori was secured to carry out a Rheumatic Fever prevention project. Together the trained Kaiāwhina, the household survey and the Rheumatic Fever project provided the basis of submissions to the Regional Health Authority to establish Hauora Ngāti Hine as it was then, as a contracted service provider.
It was April 1992 when the Ngāti Hine Health Trust was officially formed. A special relationship with the Regional Health Authority, evidenced by a Treaty-based Memorandum of Understanding was signed in 1994, as a precursor to the Trust’s entry into service delivery. The Trust’s first service contract was for provision of Mobile Community Nursing Services.
Having established itself in the delivery of a comprehensive range of mobile nursing, residential and community health services, and through the recognition of the underlying social determinants of health, over the following 24 years the Trust has expanded to encompass social, disability, education and media services.
The NHHT Strategic Plan 2018-2030 sets out a clear blueprint for the direction ahead and seeks to reconfigure our service design and delivery to align with thinking and practice that places whānau at the centre of everything we do, that encourages whānau leadership and that – in a systemic context and in the long-term is driving to ‘One Whanau, One Plan, One Place’
