HE MĀRAMATANGA HUANGŌ
ASTHMA HEALTH

We are here to support your manawa (breath) 

and your lung health. Click below to see us for support

Here at Te Hiku Hauora, we provide free education, treatment, monitoring and awhi (support) for tamariki and kaumātua in Te Hiku living with asthma.

 

Asthma is a respiratory disease, which according to the Asthma Foundation NZ, is on the rise across Aotearoa.

 

Recent research shows that Pasifika whānau have the highest hospitalisation rates across all respiratory diseases, except for asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), where Māori rates are higher. Māori also have the highest rates of death caused by a respiratory disease.

 

Together we will work with you and your whānau to ensure you understand everything you need to know about your asthma, how to use your inhalers and medications and to develop individual care plans with the help of your whānau. 

 

We will also provide access to health programmes and services that can support you with your health goals.
