Te Piringa is the name of an independent body of research that provides key recommendations and findings about using a whānau-centred approach to primary health care services.
The metaphor of Te Piringa has been drawn upon as a way to create space for shared and unique expressions of Māori and Pacific Peoples. Te Piringa provides shelter, a haven of refuge, as well as a link between peoples, lands and ways of being. It is the first Ministerial commissioned body of research that informs the opportunities about how to explore the use of a whānau-centred approach to primary health care services which could lead to improved Māori and Pacific health and wellbeing outcomes.
