Professor Makere Mutu: Racism is Prevalent in NZ Health System

May 10, 2022, 12:51 p.m.

Professor Makere Mutu, Chair for Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Kahu shares her concerns for our people as the current health system in Aotearoa is struggling to provide adequate services, seeing waiting lists for urgent care continue to increase and many continue to suffer. The matter of hospitals and health care providers being under-resourced is nothing new, however, Makere hopes that this may change with the support of the Māori Health Authority, especially for areas that have a high population of Māori.
