Aotearoa New Zealand Paediatrics & Child Health Division Committee
The Aotearoa New Zealand Committee established the Aotearoa New Zealand Paediatrics & Child Health Division Committee to support the professional careers of Fellows and trainees in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Our support incorporates tikanga Māori values of:
- manaakitanga | hospitality, kindness and support
- whanaungatanga | relationships, sense of family connection
- mōhiotanga | knowledge, understanding and insight
We advocate, promote and advance the body of knowledge around paediatric medicine and health care of children and young adults, with emphasis on the needs of tamariki (Māori children) and Pasifika (Pacific children).
Mā te rongomaiwhiti o te tamaiti e arahi ā tātou mahi —
“Let the uniqueness of the child guide our work”
We acknowledge Te Tiriti ō Waitangi | The Treaty of Waitangi and the foundational principles of bicultural partnership, participation and protection it guarantees. Our policies consider the impact on wellbeing and mana of Māori as tangata whenua and ensure the above values are upheld.
