Tūruki: Māori education grants for Hawke’s Bay healthcare workers

Tūruki is the Māori workforce development strategy for the Hawke’s Bay District Health Board and provides Māori education grants for healthcare.

The programme was developed in 2008 as a partnership between the Hawke’s Bay District Health Board, Iwi and Māori Hauora Providers.

The Tūruki strategy is a direct response to addressing the health needs of Māori people in Hawke’s Bay, aiming to build a healthcare workforce that represents the cultural profile of our community.

Tūruki has three primary objectives:


Strengthen the capability of Māori working in health


Increase the number of Māori working in health


Improve the responsiveness of the non-Māori workforce to Māori
