The sample includes men from each of the eight MWWL regions (Te Taitokerau, Tamaki Makaurau, Waikato, Waiariki, Te Tairawhiti, Aotea, Poneke, and Te Waipounamu), and participants from each of the following groups: men in prisons/gangs, takataapui tane (men who have sex with men), and men living with disabilities.
These men have been identified from within their communities via the MWWL and other networks, and have a degree of mana founded on trust developed over time in these communities.
With reference to the principles described in the previous section, the importance of the MWWL to the Hauora Tane project can be readily appreciated.
