Promoting Health in Aotearoa New Zealand is the first comprehensive text on health promotion in New Zealand. Primarily written for students, practitioners and policy makers in the health sector, it will be of interest also to those promoting health in Maori, Pacific Island and other NGOs and to those in government agencies. This book will also have wider relevance to an international audience concerned with promoting the health of indigenous peoples. The contributors come from a wide range of backgrounds and experience, offering different perspectives using a range of theories and approaches.


"The integration of an indigenous analysis throughout this text makes it a unique contribution that will be of great value to scholars, practitioners and all of those working in health promotion in New Zealand, Australia and beyond." —Sir Mason Durie, Professor Emeritus, Massey University, New Zealand 

"A valuable contribution to promoting health and wellbeing in Aotearoa NZ and the Pacific region." —Dr. Colin Tukuitonga, Director-General, Secretariat of the Pacific Community, New Caledonia 

"A must read for all health promoters, policy-makers and those seeking new solutions to public health problems." —Fran Baum, professor and Director, Southgate Institute, Flinders University
