Our Vision

To bring together a strong collaboration of leaders committed to building an equitable future, through transforming health and well-being outcomes everyday, for all New Zealanders.

Collaborative Aotearoa is committed to:

  • Honouring Te Tiriti o Waitangi
  • Elevating the voices of whānau, communities, and Hauora networks within our mahi
  • Bolstering services to advance delivery of the NZ Health reforms through continued support for general practices, digital health and localities learning platforms

Health Care Home

The Health Care Home enhanced model of care establishes a whānau-centric approach which enables primary care to deliver a better experience for whānau and staff, an improved quality of care, and provide greater business sustainability.

Digital Health

Digital Health represents a shift in the way health care is delivered and supports use of telehealth to improve access for whānau.

Collective Action with Communities

Localities will serve the communities of Aotearoa through reorganised primary and community care services. Every locality will have a consistent range of core services, how these services are delivered will be based on the needs and priorities of local communities.


Our Mission

Continue to partner with the best experts to powerfully support system change to ensure whānau flourish. We will expand the reach of the Collaborative across the motu, support our base membership of general practices on the journey to become Health Care Home wellbeing partners within localities, and strengthen peer to peer shared learnings and workforce development, at scale and pace. We will boldly drive our mahi towards equitable outcomes for Aotearoa through supporting:

Locally designed and tailored approaches to address priority population needs.

Better connected primary and community care providers centred on shared priorities and measurement.

Iwi-Maori leadership, honouring Te Tiriti o Waitangi partners within the local rohe.

When we change (and challenge) the way we think about and approach healthcare, we transform healthcare outcomes for all, everyday.


Our Values
