Maori, Pasifika experience isolation, bias in health policy

From Morning Report, 6:15 am on 8 March 2019

A new study has found some Maori and Pasifika leaders often experience isolation, bias, and racism on government health advisory groups. A senior lecturer in Maori Health at Auckland University of Technology, Dr Heather Came, interviewed six Maori and Pasifika leaders with at least ten years experience advising district health boards. She tells our reporter Te Aniwa Hurihanganui their views are frequently ignored.
