Tō Tātou Pūkete: E mārama ana i kā Matea Hauora o te Tai Toka

Our Health Profile: Understanding the Health Needs of the Southern District

Te Aro Matewai ki Te Māra o Hauroa – Southern Health Needs Assessment

All District Health Boards in New Zealand are required to look at the health and health needs of their people; this process is called a Health Needs Assessment. Tō Tātou Pūkete/Our Health Profile presents information about who lives in Southern, what keeps us healthy, how we get healthcare, and how healthy we are. This information helps health planners decide how best to provide the healthcare we need now and in the future. Tō Tātou Pūkete/Our Health Profile honours Māori as tangata whenua and is aligned with He Korowai Oranga - New Zealand’s Māori Health Strategy and Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

There are two main parts to Tō Tātou Pūkete/Our Health Profile

  1. The first part presents data that has been analysed with graphics and written descriptions.

  2. The second part is the Data Exploration Portal; powered by Microsoft Power Bi. The portal allows a more comprehensive examination of the data where one can view information by table and filter according to need. Where possible, data is disaggregated by year, age, gender, ethnicity, territorial local authority and deprivation.  

 Tō Tātou Pūkete/Our Health Profile is designed to be a living document. The content will be updated as new information becomes available.
