MĀORI HEALTH SCIENTIST AWARDED FOR WORK ON INDIGENOUS HEALTH
Dr Matire Harwood is a clinical researcher at the University of Auckland and has dedicated her career to discovering the inequities in the health outcomes for indigenous people.
She says, "New Zealand are world leaders in this space, we collect the data and we collect really good ethnicity data and have been showing for a number of years now. Ever since i trained as a Doctor, it shows that there are inequities between Māori and non-Māori."
Now she hopes a $25,000.00 grant that comes with the acclaim will turn her data into action and improve the health outcomes for the 400 million indigenous people around the world.......
