Dedicated to mokopuna ora, infant wellbeing and reducing the rate of SUDI
Hutia te rito o te harakeke
Kei hea te kōmako e kō?
Kī mai ki ahau
He aha te mea nui o te ao?
Māku e kī atu
He tangata! He tangata! He tangata, hī!
If the heart of the harakeke was removed
Where would the bellbird sing?
If you ask me
What is the most important thing in the world
I would reply
It is people, it is people, it is people
Whakawhetū is a national kaupapa Māori programme dedicated to reducing the rate of SUDI (Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy) for Māori.
We provide policy advice, disseminate evidence-based information and deliver training & education to the health sector and Māori communities.
We also coordinate the annual Te Rā Mokopuna Ora - Safe Sleep Day every December to support the work of DHB's and communities to reduce SUDI.
