Maori health: To better understand how cultural context can make a difference for hauora through the Green Prescription (GRx) service. Comparisons will be made between GRx services, a public initiative that supports recipients in becoming more physically active as part of the patients health management. The aim of this study is to investigate the experiences of Māori recipients of standard and ‘culturally enhanced’ Green Prescription services. The objectives are to i) bring to light the experiences of Māori GRx recipients, and ii) identify culturally appropriate ways to deliver the GRx for Māori.
