A CULTURALLY TAILORED, PERSONALISED, MHEALTH TOOL
FOR MAORI AND PASIFIKA

MEET THE TEAM

PHASE 1

CO-DESIGN

PHASE 2

Kia ora, Kia orana, Talofa lava, Malo e lelei, Welcome to OL@-OR@ (the WellTEXT project).

The aim of OL@-OR@ is to design a mobile health (mHealth) tool in partnership with our Māori and Pasifika Communities to help reduce the risk of heart disease, obesity and diabetes.

We are using co-design methods to ensure the mHealth tool meets the needs and wants of our end-users.

Once the OL@-OR@ mHealth tool is finalised it will be evaluated using a cluster-randomised control trial (RCT) study design involving Māori and Pasifika communities across new Zealand.

The project is funded by the Healthier Lives He Oranga Hauora National Science Challenge.
