An overview of the New Zealand health policy, service delivery and research contexts as they relate to hauora Māori. Key examples and approaches are explored and critically analysed.
This paper initially explores and analyses New Zealand Health Policies including He Korowai Oranga - the Māori health strategy. The responsiveness of the New Zealand Health System in relation to Māori is critiqued, and the role of Māori health service delivery, including the implementation of the Whānau Ora strategy, is discussed.
Research that informs and is responsive to Māori health needs is the focus of the second half of the paper. The development of Kaupapa Māori research theory and practice is discussed in detail, including Kaupapa Māori epidemiology. For students considering future MPH study, this paper may be considered a relevant research paper. Please contact your local convenor for advice.
