Also available to view live via the internet. See details below.

Overview

The Waitangi Tribunal Inquiry into Health Services and Outcomes (Wai 2575) is a significant national investigation into the Crown’s failure to provide equitable health care for Māori. In this seminar Teresa and Eve will provide updates on the inquiry and the cancer claim Wai 2647.

Speakers

Teresa is leading the oncology claim Wai 2647 which evidences Crown racism against Māori and the privileging of non-Māori/non-Pacific adults specifically across the cancer continuum. In this seminar she will provide an overview of the key breaches to Te Tiriti contained in her claim. Teresa Goza (Ngāti Kauwhata, Ngāti Matakore, Ngāti Raukawa) is an equity advisor, mātauranga Māori researcher and a national equity advocate. Eve represents Teresa and other claimants within all three stages of the inquiry. She will provide an overview of the Wai 2575 inquiry and a brief summary of stage one including the recently released Tribunal’s report. She will also provide an update on stage two and three and the key issues that the tribunal will focus on. Eve Rongo (Ngāti Toa, Ngāti Koata) is a lawyer and Director of Oranganui Legal Ltd.
