Te Puni Kōkiri has worked closely with Te Waiora a Tane Charitable Trust to improve their Hauora Māori and Rongoā services based in Rotorua. With Te Puni Kōkiri's support, Te Waiora a Tane has developed its strategic and business plans and more recently the clinic gained accreditation as a Māori Health Provider under the Lakes District Health Board. Te Waiora a Tane provides alternative traditional healing services to assist Māori to reconnect with the natural world by reawakening their Mātauranga taiao and their understanding of the kaupapa of Rongoā as a healthly option for Whānau. Te Waiora a Tane opened their rongoā clinic.
