    Ko Karaitiana Tickell ahau

    I am currently the Kaiwhakahaere/Chief Executive for Purapura Whetu Trust and have held positions previously related to direct delivery of mental health and alcohol and other drug services to whanau.

    I believe in keeping people well, I think prevention is a better intervention and I think all people deserve excellent care. As a clinician and māori health equity supporter, I am positive we will be able to help more whānau in the future by promoting a pro-equity, anti-racist health system.
