“Healthy Families Rotorua is focussed on encouraging Rotorua whānau to live healthier lives by making good food choices, being physically active, moderating alcohol consumption
and being smoke-free.”
Healthy Families Rotorua is a dedicated prevention workforce tasked with bringing together partnerships of key Rotorua organisations and individuals in a united effort to prevent chronic disease in Rotorua.
Healthy Families Rotorua works collaboratively with local leaders to identify, design and implement changes in community settings such as early childhood centres, schools, workplaces, food outlets, sports clubs, marae, businesses, and places of worship to help people make healthier choices.
The goal is to slow the growth of obesity and prevent chronic diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer by supporting families and communities to live healthier lives.
Get involved by becoming an AWHI Rotorua Partner and work with Healthy Families Rotorua using a ‘collective impact approach’ to challenge our communities to think differently about how to address the underlying causes of poor health at a local level.
