For release: Friday, 3 July 2018 Māori sexual and reproductive health promotion organisation Te Whāriki Takapou is highly critical of the decision by ACC to spend $18.4m on the ‘Mates and Dates’ programme rather than invest in culturally appropriate teacher-led sexuality education in schools.

Te Whāriki Takapou provides policy and advisory services to help build healthy public policy.
