About Tamariki Pakari

A lot of Tamariki Pakari’s early research programme has been focused on healthy lifestyle change, supporting the evolution of the Whānau Pakari programme. Whānau Pakari is a service funded by Taranaki District Health Board. The Department of Paediatrics: Child and Youth Health, and the Liggins Institute, University of Auckland have supported research-related activities over time, alongside multiple stakeholders.

We acknowledge the L'Oréal-UNSECO For Women in Science programme, who have supported the Trust's work.
