This strategic plan seeks to operationalise both Government’s health goals as outlined in the National Sustainable Development Plan 2015-2020 and its commitments to Global and Regional undertakings for population health and protection.

The National Health Strategic Plan 2017-2021 outlines Te Marae Ora’s strategies for health care and health services to all people living in the Cook Islands. The plan was formulated after wide consultations that included discussions with political and traditional leaders, government agencies and development partners, and NGOs. A national health seminar, that included participants from the Pa Enua, community representatives, and the general public, was also conducted as part of the consultative process.
