The event committee has invited several international guest speakers to present Indigenous health programs being implemented in Indigenous communities of Canada and New Zealand whom will be sharing various pathways, insights, results of research studies and different models of practice in the field of Indigenous Health.Among the prominent international speakers are the representatives of The Kotahitanga Whanau Ora Collective - a network of four Maori Health, Social Services and Education providers based in South Auckland, New Zealand/Aotearoa which provides services to more than 20,000 peopleand has embarked on a challenging journey to design and transform the way it delivers services to whanau/families through a new family-centred model of care called “Mana Tiaki”.  This model is premised on Maori values and kaupapa (philosophy and platform) and serves to improve the outcomes of families who have significant and multi-faceted needs.  The Kotahitanga Collective will be sharing their insights and are keen to support the overall intent of the conference in promoting indigenous models and approaches to reduce the gap in Indigenous health. Indeed this 3-day event will offer a truly unique experience for all delegates.
