Public health workforce development:  Te Uru Kahikatea projects

 Te Uru Kahikatea: Public Health Workforce Development Plan
Te Uru Kahikatea (TUK), the national strategy to guide public health workforce development in New Zealand, outlines a number of  "actions" or projects to implement the nine TUK objectives.  


Each year the Ministry of Health develops a TUK workplan to indicate its work priorities for that year.
