What is PREKURE?

PREKURE is a high impact social organisation that's dedicated to the World Health Organisation’s definition of human health: “A state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

To improve the population’s health, we must ‘pre cure’. We must prevent ill-health in the first place and optimise for hauora/wellbeing.

We are a team of health professionals who are highly-educated in the science and practice of lifestyle medicine.
