Health Promotion Procurement
In July 2022 Te Hiringa Hauora | Health Promotion Agency was disestablished as a separate entity and moved into Te Whatu Ora - Health New Zealand. We are now a shared service within the National Public Health Service for Te Whatu Ora - Health New Zealand.
Nōku te Ao: Like Minds works to increase social inclusion and reduce stigma and discrimination for people who experience severe mental distress, prioritising those who are most affected by mental distress and who often experience multiple forms of discrimination.
This notification is to inform interested suppliers of our upcoming RFP release to engage an organisation to monitor media publications (including by Māori and Pacific media) and to support the positive, stigma-reducing portrayals of people with experiences of mental distress. This contract is likely to involve building relationships with media organisations, developing and promoting guidelines for their portrayal of people with experiences of distress, celebrating exemplary portrayals and proactively responding to reduce the potential harm of negative media portrayals of distress. It may also involve organising the provision of grants and monitoring engagement on Nōku te Ao social media channels.
We anticipate releasing the RFP early February 2023.
