Aki Hauora APP (University of Otago)
Aki Hauora:  Building on the success of the original Aki App;  the Aki Hauora App is specifically a learning tool for health professional students in assisting them to learn/become more familiar with, Māori language terms for specific words used commonly in the health environment.  The use of the Māori language within a clinical setting is documented as being a quality health indicator, therefore this App is targeted at improving quality health services for Māori.
