What is the cost? Estimating the economic costs of Māori: non-Māori child health inequities in Aotearoa: a scoping study
Inequalities in child health between tamariki Māori and non-Māori are largely preventable and unnecessary. An example is rheumatic fever, where tamariki Māori are 30 times more likely to contract the disease than non-Māori.
Being ill as a child has a big impact on school attendance and outcomes, and it may cause lifelong disability or illness. There are high costs involved, both for the health system and for society.Professor Papaarangi Reid

How will tikanga Māori empower the evaluation of the experience of Māori whānau in crisis to measure the performance of the Government’s new obligations in law to Te Tiriti o Waitangi?
Our longterm objective is to bring new evaluative knowledge to empower the mana of whānau in crisis.
Māori have clearly and consistently stressed that a Māori child’s wellbeing is inherently linked to their place within, and connection to, whānau, hapū and iwi.Khylee QuinceDr Amohia BoultonProfessor Jacinta Ruru FRSNZMs Tania Williams
