Johan Morreau


Johan has been a paediatrician in Rotorua since 1984.

In 2018 he retired clinically but with “unfinished business “ remains active in a Child Health Advisory and Advocacy capacity. Health leadership and clinical experience has enabled understanding of the direct linkage between Government policy, the structures, culture and focus of the services being delivered, and the relationship of these to what is happening to children and young people in New Zealand.

His linked “First 1000 days” TED talk gives emphasis to this and reflects his interest in Maori child health.
