Harakeke has been chosen to represent the SPHC project because harakeke represents whānau. The rito | shoot represents the child, the awhi rito | shoots that embrace the rito, represent the parents, and the outer leaves represent the tūpuna | ancestors.
This Supporting Parents Healthy Children Animation was created by the Supporting Parents Healthy Children Cross Workforce National Project Group. It is one example of whānau-led practice in the context of the Supporting Parents Healthy Children Guideline.
We have also created an SPHC poster. Download a copy of the SPHC poster for your workspaces and waiting rooms here.
