In July 1992 Te Pūmanawa Hauora ki te Whanganui ā Tara was established at the Wellington School of Medicine, headed by the late Professor Eru Pōmare. Following his untimely death in 1995, the Centre was renamed Te Rōpū Rangahau Hauora a Eru Pōmare (the Eru Pōmare Māori Health Research Centre).
Te Rōpū Rangahau Hauora a Eru Pōmare strives to create a Kaupapa Māori space committed to improving Māori health outcomes and eliminating inequalities through quality science and ongoing theoretical development. It takes a rights-based approach consistent with the Treaty of Waitangi, and is engaged with community through a spectrum of influence from community development, policy advocacy, research dissemination and Māori health research workforce development.
