Episode Four: Te Rōpu Poa

Te Rōpu Poa is a woman of seemingly endless talents – and roles. 


She leads Te Hau Ora o Ngāpuhi and is a stalwart champion for health issues, resource management and more for Māori across the north of New Zealand and beyond.  


Taking a big-picture view of health that goes beyond physical and mental aspects to incorporate housing, whānau and community, she speaks to Te Tuhi Robust about the impacts of COVID-19 on people, on her multiple leadership roles and on the ever-present water crisis.
