Māori Health Providers

There are a number of Māori health providers contracted to District Health Boards throughout Aotearoa. Māori health providers tend to deliver health and disability services to predominantly Māori clients, although certainly not exclusively to Māori clients. What does distinguish the service is the kaupapa and the delivery framework which is distinctively Māori.
