Who we are

Kaitiaki Ora – Tactical Medicine New Zealand is a not-for-profit association of tactical medicine practitioners that aim to advocate and support the development of tactical medicine in Aotearoa New Zealand. Established in 2020, Tactical Medicine New Zealand is the home for the tactical medicine community and the leading advocacy group to support existing organisation’s to develop their capability.


What We Do

Using our experiences as first responders, military medics and medical specialists, we will work with existing organisations across the spectrum of casualty care to improve capability to save lives. Through research, professional development, competition and strategic engagement we will improve the chain of survival to decrease morbidity and mortality from critical incidents.
