How was Te Uru Kahikatea developed?

Te Uru Kahikatea (TUK) is based on a wide range of foundation public health research that provided a clear indication of workforce issues impacting on the public health workforce.  


That foundation public health research included:

  • A Phoenix Research 2004 survey (note that this is a large report) of Ministry of Health public health organisations and people in public health jobs in those organisations
  • A range of topic-specific health reports
  • Sector consultation reports
  • Emergency management research
  • ... and more.
