Who We Are

FOLLOWING THE MOLOKA‘I HEART STUDY

Nā Pu‘uwai  Native Hawaiian Health Care System, as it exists today, began operations in October 1990 with funding from the Native Hawaiian Health Care Improvement Act of 1988.

Nā Pu‘uwai  applied for and received federal recognition in 1986 as a 501(c)(3) non- profit entity dedicated to researching chronic diseases affecting Native Hawaiians and improving their health.  The Board of Directors included representatives from four districts on topside Moloka‘i, one from Kalaupapa and one from Lana‘i.
When the opportunity arose to expand Na Pu‘uwai to provide a suite of culturally-relevant health services, the communities of Moloka‘i and Lana‘i approved.

Our Vision

OUR LOGO REFERS TO THE HEART (PU‘UWAI) AND ITS CONTINUOUS CYCLE OF BLOOD (THE WELL SPRINGS OF LIFE).

It is analogy to our island and the rebirth of life through the continuous process of life-sustaining water by which all things (including the Native Hawaiian) find life.

Our Mission

WE ARE HERE TO HELP.

The mission of Nā Pu‘uwa is to improve the health conditions of Native Hawaiians on Moloka‘i and Lana‘i by maximizing their capacity to access and influence the establishment of a health care system responsive to and respectful of their cultural beliefs and practices.

The Native Hawaiian Health Care Act requires Nā Pu‘uwai’s system of health care delivery to access as many Native Hawaiians as possible into the present health care provided by trained medical professionals who also take into account traditional ‘ohana (extended family) values, spiritual beliefs, and mana (personal power) equal to and complimentary to contemporary medicine.
