How we work

Working on our own projects

Our work is organised around projects with specific aims and outcomes to improve the sexual and reproductive health of rangatahi, whānau, and Māori communities.

Projects are grouped under one of our main service areas:

  • Health promotion
  • Health research
  • Policy and advisory
  • Information services

Working in collaboration with other groups

We also collaborate with organisations in the health, education and research sectors on projects that we have shared responsibility, or that we contribute towards in part.
