Te Mana Whakahaere - Community Ownership and Autonomy

Autonomy LargeCommunities - whether they be based on hapü, marae, iwi, whānau or places of worship, interest or residence - must ultimately be able to demonstrate a level of autonomy and self-determination in promoting their own health and wellbeing.

Te Mana Whakahaere addresses the extent to which communities themselves take ownership of, and have a degree of autonomy over, improving their own health and wellbeing.
