Moana Research is a consultancy group of passionate researchers and clinicians committed to making the early years the best start in life for all children.
We are focused on evidence-based solutions through research so that families have access to essential services and resources during pregnancy and in the first five years of life.
Our purpose is to help families and communities thrive and through our work that they are better engaged in leading their own wellness journey.
We believe in the importance of culture and its relationship to the wellbeing of children and families. Our own cultural worldviews and lived experiences enables us to appreciate the importance of identity and diversity throughout our work.
Relationships are at the heart of all our work. We believe in effective partnerships and collaboration with our clients. Engaging with our communities and families provides essential insights that contribute to our research.
We operate with the utmost sincerity and transparency. We are accountable to our communities who trust us to capture and share their stories.
We strive for excellence and pride ourselves on ensuring delivery of professional services. Best practice is applied in all facets of our work.
“We want to work in the community where our work, our research and the projects we work on is owned by the community, stays in the community and not hidden away.” – Dr Teuila Percival
