Impacts of Inequity Highlighted

On the 31st August, an NPM panel of esteemed Māori researchers met in a live video webinar session to investigate, expose and discuss the ethics of rationing health in a racialised society.

Professor Papaarangi Reid facilitated a discussion between Professor Linda Tuhiwai Smith, Associate Professor Krushil Wātene and Dr Donna Cormack, where they explored the topic of Rationing Māori Life and Well-Being - Who Decides and How?

Following the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic internationally, there have been dramatic images of overwhelmed health services.  And so all tools being developed in NZ must have as starting points a commitment to be Te Tiriti o Waitangi aligned, pro-equity and anti-racist.

This highly successful webinar was supported by Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga and Te Rōpū Whakakaupapa Urūta and during the 90 minute discussion attracted an online audience of more than 300 attendees.
