Welcome to Te Kupenga Hauora o Tauranga Moana.

Manaaki Whanau, Tangata Ora!

Te Kupenga Hauora o Tauranga Moana is an independant health provider established in 1990 by Kuia of Tauranga Moana. Through their wisdom and foresight they identified that Maori children under 5 years of age needed access to culturally appropriate health services. To ensure that tamariki Maori received those services Te Kupenga Hauora o Tauranga Moana developed and maintained a strong bond with Nga Kohanga Reo o Tauranga Moana.

Te Kupenga Hauora o Tauranga Moana was initially under the umbrella of Tauranga Moana Te Kohanga Reo District Tino Rangatiratanga Unit (DTRU). The purpose of the unit was to monitor, liaise, support and advise all kohanga reo on behalf of the National Kohanga Reo Trust.

In 1998 the DTRU was disestablised and Te Kupenga Hauora o Tauranga Moana was incorporated under the Charitable Trusts Act.
