Tūruki: Career pathway support for Māori in health

Tūruki is the Māori health workforce development for the Hawke’s Bay District Health Board and provides career pathway support for Māori in health.

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:


Build the capability and capacity of our Māori workforce


Increase the number of Māori working in health


Improve the cultural capability of our workforce
