AUT STUDY FINDS MAORI VOICES BEING CUT FROM HEALTH SECTOR
Maori representation in the health sector appears to be under threat as targeted initiatives are scaled back.
A study revealed the Ministry of Health disestablished their Maori policy team, Te Kete Hauora, last year along with revoking mandatory district health boards' Maori health plans and reporting, and scaling back the requirements of DHBs to consult with Maori. AUT senior lecturer in Maori health and author of the study Dr Heather Came believed these were examples of the Ministry "quietly downsizing" their checks and balances to ensure Maori representation.
"These were structural mechanisms to help address institutional racism and enable Treaty obligations to be met. They've removed those and are relying on good faith ... I don't want to leave it to chance.......

Why do these maori think they are so special that they should have special rights? Traditional maori health was a joke pre 1800's, and just because they make up some BS claims, changes nothing. Pre 1800's maori were stoneage. Their never ending sense of entitlement is something they should take a look at.
