Waharoa ki Te Toi Research Centre Adapt to Lockdowns

Nov. 9, 2021, 2:49 p.m.

Waharoa ki Te Toi Research Centre based at the Kaitaia Hospital was opened in 2018 to focus on health issues that severely impacted our Māori and Pacific people. Conor Watene-O'Sullivan Health Research Coordinator for the Moko Foundation talks to us about the ongoing mahi over the last three years with others like the Maurice Wilkins Centre of Research Excellence allowing them to deliver scientific projects focused on health determined a priority for te iwi Māori and communities like ours. A considerable amount of the work requires close contact, however these projects have been severely hindered due to the reoccurring Covid lockdowns. Conor says they have been able to adapt by re-diverting their energy to other spaces allowing work to continue.
