Māori authority welcomes health system reform as important first step


Manukau Urban Māori Authority (MUMA) is welcoming the government's health reforms as an important first step to improving Māori and Pasifika health in south Auckland. The reforms also include the establishment of Te Aka Whai Ora (the Māori Health Authority) to improve indigenous health which will work in partnership with Health NZ. He said establishing a Māori Health Authority would give Māori greater responsibility for the delivery of their own health services. "For too long the health system hasn't addressed the wellbeing of Māori, or those at the bottom of the cliff," O'Donnell said. "The resourcing of the Māori Health Authority is going to be critical to its success," she said.
