Maori health inequity

While the health equity position statement remains the cornerstone of what we do, the health of Māori generally needs to be reflected throughout all the advocacy themes. The Treaty of Waitangi makes us unique as a nation and is reason in itself to have Māori health inequity reflected as a separate item in the advocacy themes.

Māori health equity issues have been highlighted in several of our recent submissions, including Living Well with Diabetes and the Maternity Quality Initiative.
