HOKIANGA HEALTH ENTERPRISE TRUST is a registered charitable trust formed in May 1992, owned and governed by the people of Hokianga, the majority of whom (75%) are Maori.
Hokianga Health (or Hauora Hokianga) is a health care provider, owned by the Trust. We provide a range of comprehensive,
integrated health services
to approximately 6,500 people who reside within the catchment area of the Hokianga river. The services which include GP visits are Kaupapa Maori based, and are
provided at no cost at the point of need for all registered members of the practice.
Hauora Hokianga is a member of the Te Tai Tokerau Primary Health Organisation.
Hokianga is located on the
west coast of the Far North district of New Zealand. The area is traditionally described in Maori
society through the visual linking of the mountains that surround the river.
Hokianga is rich in both Maori and European history and is considered by Maori to be the birthplace of the nation.
Kupe, the great pacific explorer,
before eventually returning to Hawaiiki, settled in this place
that later became known as Hokianga nui a Kupe.
