The Health Navigator Charitable Trust (HNCT) works to ensure everyone in Aotearoa New Zealand has easy access to high quality, culturally acceptable health information, tools and resources. It also makes life easier for health professionals working with patients and clients in the pursuit of shared decision making and self-determination.
HNCT focuses on health literacy, self-management support and promoting self-management skills. It founded, and continues to run, the popular Healthify He Puna Waiora website (formerly known as Health Navigator NZ), and co-creates a range of other high-quality tools and resources.
An important part of HNCT's mahi is working with others to make any door the right door for people wanting to improve their, or their whānau's, health: at the click of a button, scan of a code or swipe of a screen, it should be possible to quickly access what is needed to lead healthier lives.
