Welcome to Toi Te Ora Public Health

Toi Te Ora Public Health's vision is lifelong health and wellbeing for all.

Our purpose is to improve, promote and protect the health of the communities in the Bay of Plenty and Lakes districts.

Established in 1996, we are the public health unit for the Bay of Plenty and Lakes Districts Health Boards.

We are one of twelve public health units across New Zealand and are funded by the Ministry of Health.

We focus on the achievement of health equity, in particular for Māori.
