ASM theme and whakatauāki

What matters in health? | Tukua mai kia piri, tukua mai kia tata

Aotearoa’s health system is focused on pae ora or wellbeing for all.  RANZCOG’s Aotearoa ASM 2023 will examine the definition of health. Sessions will focus on the breadth of what matters in health from evidence-based practice through to patient perspectives.

Our whakatauāki translates to ‘Come hither, converge to the bosom of my people’. It is gifted to our ASM by Te Arawa, as a welcome and also as an encouragement for us to come together to help shape and reform the health system, no matter where we are from.  

RANZCOG Aotearoa ASM 2023 seeks to engage everyone in conversation about pae ora and what matters in health for obstetrics and gynaecology.
