Te Rā o Te Waka Hourua is the Strategic Research Agenda for Māori and Pasifika Suicide Prevention. It provided a framework for the priority areas in a one-off research fund. Te Rā o Te Waka Hourua helps to build the evidence base of what works for Māori whānau, hapū, iwi, Pasifika families and communities to prevent suicide. This work is being carried out through research by, with and for these groups. It is driven by distinctive Māori and Pasifika priorities, aspirations, and values that are underpinned by the realities of Māori and Pasifika experience and world views.
