Greg Mullany

Ngāti Kahungunu

Greg Mullany was born and raised in Heretaunga and now resides in Te Awa Kairangi (Lower Hutt). Through his life experiences, he developed a deep love for his community. He recognises his purpose and passion in life is to share, collaborate and advance the self-determined health aspirations of Māori and Pacific peoples.

A passion he applies through his role as a Public Health Advisor on the Tobacco, Drug, and Alcohol team at Te Whatu Ora Health New Zealand. In this role, he supports the development of evidence-based policy interventions to address health priorities for Māori, including tobacco control, alcohol, and drug use.

In this capacity, Greg exercises his Kaitiakitanga to collaborate closely with the Police and Council to assess liquor license applications. He actions his rangatiratanga to report on behalf of the medical officer of health, either in support or objection, depending on whether the applications necessitate a hearing before the district licensing committee or ARLA (alcohol regulatory licensing authority). Regrettably, there is a limited presence of Māori or Pasifika individuals in this field, so there is a need to ensure Kotahitanga when promoting this mahi.

Previously, Greg served as a Population Health Promoter at Te Awakairangi Health Network, a primary care network that offers quality primary care services throughout the Hutt Valley. In this capacity, he collaborated with general practices, healthcare providers, and community organisations to empower individuals and ensure they receive the necessary care they require.
