HPF offers new tool for families

While we all stay at home in a bid to halt the spread of Covid-19 and to save lives, our primary focus during these challenging and for many, stressful and anxious times, is our family and whanau wellbeing.

To help build your whanau and family capacity, maintain your wellbeing, and to keep you safe, healthy and happy, HPF has developed a health promotion tool, which gives you the freedom to be creative and make a plan that suits your needs and situation.

Entitled ‘A Health Promotion tool for empowering whanau and families against Covid-19’ the tool can also help your family survive, thrive, and flourish after the Covid-19 pandemic.

It also includes a ready-made plan, based on Fonua Ola, a Pacific health promotion tool, that you can quickly adapt.

The tool encourages whanau and family to consult regularly to plan, implement, monitor and evaluate guidelines and activities for the wellbeing of the whole family.

Following the advice and instructions from the Government, Ministry of Health and other public authorities is encouraged.  See details of Government advice on Covid-19: https://covid19.govt.nz/

If families and health promoters would like to learn more we can offer online sessions. Contact emma@hauora.co.nz for details.

Stay home, and save lives. Saving your whanau and family is saving the world. Health begins where we live, love, learn, play and pray together.
