National Hauora Coalition - NHC is an NGO and Primary Healthcare Organisation (PHO) that operates locally and in other rohe. They work with Iwi, district health boards, other governmental and non-governmental organisations, including health and social service providers and schools, and a range of professionals to support whānau.

The challenge was to create brand identity solution that reflects the coalition aspect along with the nature of service, with a flair of Maori culture. HAUORA in Maori means Health. The concept is based on ‘te whare tapa wha’ - the four cornerstones (or sides) of Maori health and the coalition with government.

With its strong foundations and four equal sides, the symbol illustrates the four dimensions of Maori well-being.
1. Taha Tinana (physical health)
2. Taha Wairua (spiritual health)
3. Taha Whanau (family health)
4. Taha Hinengaro (mental health).
