Public Service


Toi Te Ora Public Health (Toi Te Ora) is funded by the Ministry of Health and is the public health unit for the Bay of Plenty and Lakes District Health Boards.

‘Toi Te Ora’ suggests the idea of enduring wellbeing.  ‘Toi’ is the name of a celebrated ancestor in the Eastern Bay of Plenty and ‘Ora’ is to be alive, well and healthy.

What we do

Public health is about action that protects our environments, prevents illness and injury and promotes health and wellbeing of communities.

Toi Te Ora Public Health develops and delivers a wide range of health promotion and health protection programmes for people in the greater Bay of Plenty and Lakes districts.  

Our work involves people and organisations working together to improve the health of our communities and people at risk. The focus of our work supports the social and physical environments in which we live, and delivers programmes encouraging healthy activities.
