The Outcomes Framework is being utilised to demonstrate progress, monitoring and measuring, providing evidence of how the Waka Hourua Māori and Pasifika Suicide Prevention programme makes positive differences to Māori and Pasifika and that there are clear links between actions/ pathways and outcomes.
