‘Wero your Tero’ campaign calls for Māori men to be aware of Prostate Cancer risks

‘Wero your Tero’  campaign calls for Māori men to be aware of  Prostate Cancer risks

The ‘Wero your Tero’ campaign kicks off at a breakfast launch in Ōtautahi at Rehua Marae from 7.30-9.30am on 26th September 2018. The campaign has been developed to create awareness among tāne of the risks and symptoms of prostate cancer and to encourage regular check-ups.


‘Wero your Tero’ is a community project which has been funded by Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu and Pharmac in response to Māori men being twice as likely to be diagnosed with the metastatic disease than non-Māori. Research shows that one man every three hours will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in New Zealand, and that’s eight men every day, 3000 every year.


“Six hundred men will die annually from prostate cancer. What we’re saying to whānau is that it could be your pāpā, matua, brother, a friend, so we all need to do something about it collectively,” says Project Manager, Vania Pirini.


A study from the Midland Cancer Network and Auckland University found that 19% of Māori men have metastatic, or advanced prostate cancer when they receive a diagnosis compared with 10% of Europeans.


“We need to understand why there is differential care – and we need to also ensure that the awareness message gets out there – hence the Wero your Tero campaign.


“Some of our tāne in the Ōtautahi Māori community got together and have come up with the ‘Wero your Tero’ campaign to draw attention to the issue in the hope more of our tāne become aware of the risks and get checked regularly. We have developed a ‘Wero your Tero’ Facebook page and video and will be holding wānanga to create more platforms for discussion and ways we can encourage tāne to make their health a priority,” says Pirini.


For more information, we advise whānau to check out www.prostate.org.nz or see your local doctor now.

Moturoa Wānanga

Kaitiaki Whenua Programme

Project Moturoa brings together two powerful kaupapa in Te Tau Ihu.  The Regional Intersectoral Forum is committed to a vision for Te Tau Ihu Māori to flourish.  The Te Tau Ihu Alliance Group (Kotahitanga mō te Taiao) offers up a vision for environmental leadership across our rohe.

Together this opens up opportunities where we can enhance the mauri of the environment and the people in an interconnected way.  Project Moturoa and its Wānanga aims to do just that.

The purpose of this Wānanga is to offer 20-22 Rangatahi across Te Tau Ihu the opportunity to gain valuable conservation skills embedded in Mātauranga Māori.  We hope to have 2 from each Iwi, 2 from Maataawaka and two from Ngāti Waewae who look after the Western parts of Kahurangi.  The training will offer national qualifications alongside visits to the different Marae to learn the diversity of stories, histories, tikanga and wāhi tapu.  A mix of tāne and wāhine will be trained in skills that benefit their people as well as the mauri of our land, rivers and oceans in this rohe.


If you would like to be nominated or know anyone who should be nominated, please contact the office on: Phone: 03 5735170 or email office@teatiawatrust.co.nz
