We developed the National Guidelines in response to requests we received from other organisations.
The National Guidelines help organisations to plan and deliver sexual and reproductive health services that better match the values and aspirations of Māori communities. They were evaluated with staff of Family Planning and meet the Ministry of Health guidelines for health education resources, and available for download through the link below.
We work with kura kaupapa Māori to develop sexuality education programmes that all kura kaupapa Māori and Māori-medium schools and classes can use.
Programmes draw upon mātauranga Māori understandings of good sexual and reproductive health, and are freely available through our website. Teachers are encouraged to customise the programmes to meet their local kura kaupapa Māori requirements.
Te Aitanga a Tiki is a collection of Māori and English language resources – pūrākau, waiata, mōteatea – that are sourced from Māori knowledge and relate to sexual and reproductive health.
Produced in te reo Māori and English, these resources are relevant for teachers of sexuality education in Māori and English-medium schools, and sexual and reproductive health promoters working with Māori communities.
