Ngai Tahu Māori Health Research Centre


The Ngai Tahu Māori Health Research Unit is a partnership between Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu and the Dunedin School of Medicine of the University of Otago. The Unit collects, collates, interprets and publishes information, data and statistics on Māori health issues - an essential part of Māori health development. The research focuses for the Unit are: hauora rangatahi (young people's health); hauora wahine (Māori women's health) and oranga niho (dental health).

The Unit has collaborative research projects with the Injury Prevention Research Unit and The Christchurch Health and Development Study.

The Unit also assists other research groups with aspects of Māori health research that may be part of their respective projects.
