Key objectives of Tamariki Ora are to offer vital health services that improve tamariki well being and overall health plus also to increase positive Maori health statistics for our children.

Our registered nurses work within a Kaupapa Maori framework. They are highly mobile, well resourced and equipped and travel locally: from Waihi Beach through to Pukehina.  They are responsible for facilitating Well Child checks & immunisations plus work in partnership with Tamariki Ora Kaimahi in educating and supporting parents/caregivers. Other primary responsibilities include up to date assesments, clinic days and other key family health intersectoral collaboration and co-ordination initiative for target groups (Tamariki Ora, registered clients, vaccinators, GP’s and nurses) that aim to identify priority groups and reduce barriers to accessing health services.
