Kokua Mau A Movement to Improve Care
Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
MissionKokua Mau's vision is a community where the people of Hawai`i are treated with dignity, compassion and love throughout their lives. (This is Kokua Mau's highest aspiration.)
To make that vision a reality, our mission is to weave a lei of caregiving and support so that the people of Hawai`i facing serious illness can live in the place of their choice, with relief of pain and suffering, and according to their values, beliefs and traditions.
What We DoKokua Mau has a three-fold approach to achieving our goals.
1. We support people who may be facing serious illness and their loved ones by providing information to help them understand decisions they may need to make and find resources and information in our community.
2. We provide education and networking to professionals.
3. Bringing about policy and systems change. We partner with hospitals and health plans to advise, advocate, train and educate for change.
4. Providing relevant up-to-date information about COVID-19 for our network kept us incredibly busy for over a year.
We're launching an ambitious program to increase our impact by getting our community talking about people's wishes for care where they work, live and pray. We'll need to develop appropriate messages and campaigns for Hawaii's diverse and vibrant population.
