I whakaputaina e Te Rōpū Rangahau Hauora a Eru Pōmare, he rīpoata whakarāpopoto i ngā tatauranga hauora Māori mō ngā Poari Hauora a-Rohe o te motu nei. Koinei te wā tuatahi kua puta ēnei momo tatauranga i roto i te reo Māori.

I rangahaua ngā tirohanga hauora e Te Rōpū Rangahau Hauora a Eru Pōmare, i Te Whare Wānanga o Otago ki Pōneke. I kōmihangahia tēnei mahi e Te Manatū Hauora. Nā Piripi Walker i whakamāori.

"Mā tātou, mō tātou, ēnei rīpoata. Mā te mohio ka whai hua, ka whai oranga mō tātou katoa," hei tā Bridget Robson, tētehi o ngā kairangahau.

"Ko te tūmanako ka whai whakaaro tātou katoa ki te reo Māori, ki ngā kura, ki ngā tari, ki ngā rātonga hauora, ki ngā hōhipera, ki ngā hāpori katoa o te motu," te kī a Shirley Simmonds, tētehi anō o ngā kairangahau.

Haere ki te paetukutuku www.otago.ac.nz/MHP2015 ki te pānui i ngā ripoata katoa.

Ānei ētehi o ngā kitenga:

  • I Taranaki, he mea nui kia whai wāhi ki te ahurea Māori mō te hautoru o ngā pakeke Māori (68%), waihoki te taha wairua (64%).
  • I ngā rohe katoa o te motu, mahi aroha ai te nuinga o ngā pakeke Māori i ētehi wā. Ā, nui kē atu te kitenga o te hunga Māori ki te tiaki i te hunga hauā, i te hunga māuiui rānei, kāore he utu, tēnā i a tauiwi.
  • I te rohe o Te Hauora a Toi, i te tau 2013, 48% o ngā pakeke Māori 18 neke rānei ngā tau, kua whai tiwhikete Taumata 2, piki ake rānei, a he nui kē atu tēnei i te tau 2006 (39%).
  • E toru haurima o ngā tamariki i ngā kāinga Māori o Tāmakimakaurau e noho ana i te whare rēti.
  • I Te Taitokerau, o te hunga noho i ngā kāinga Māori, 32% kāore kau he hononga ipurangi, 26% kāore kau he waea, 13% kāore kau he waea pūkoro.
  • Kotahi haurua o ngā tamariki o Wairarapa, e 5 te pakeke, me tētahi hauwhā o ngā tamariki tauiwi, kua pāngia e te niho pirau.
  • Kei te heke haere te tokomaha o ngāi Māori mai i 15-24 tau he auau te kai paipa i ngā rohe katoa.
  • I Te Tairāwhiti, he neke atu i te 19 te teiteinga ake o nga whakaurunga ki te hōhipera mō te Māori mō te mate rangatira (koute), tēnā i a tauiwi, e mōhiotia ai he maha ake ngā kakānga mamae mō te Māori.
  • Ka whakahoki kōrero mai te nuinga o ngāi Māori o Ōtakou-Murihiku (84%) he pai te noho o tā rātou whānau.

District Health Board 2015 Māori Health Profiles now in te reo Māori

Snapshots of Māori health in 20 District Health Board (DHB) regions all around New Zealand have been released today in te reo Māori for the first time.

The 2015 Māori Health Profiles were researched and compiled by Te Rōpū Rangahau Hauora a Eru Pōmare, at the University of Otago, Wellington. Commissioned by the Ministry of Health, they focus on the health status of Māori, and reveal where there are inequalities compared to non-Māori. The reports were translated into te reo Māori by Piripi Walker.

Lead researcher Bridget Robson says that it’s important to have this information in te reo Māori.

“The people and communities most affected must have the statistics in their own language. We hope they will assist reo speakers to engage with Māori health data and advocate for the issues affecting their communities,” says Ms Robson.

“The profiles are a useful base for identifying key issues and planning actions to improve Māori health. They provide information in te reo for Māori in communities, in services providing health care, and on boards making decisions about health spending,” she says.

The 20 profiles include indicators of whānau wellbeing, housing and income, health service use and health status. They are publicly available and can be used by any individual or organisation with an interest in hauora Māori. The summary documents are available in English as well as in te reo.
