The RACP’s Māori Health Hui is a biennial project of the Māori Health Committee, a standing Committee of the NZ Committee. The third and most recent Hui was held in Auckland at te Manukanuka o Hoturoa Marae in Mangere on 9 November 2017. It was attended by Māori RACP members, RACP Board and members of the Senior Leadership Group, as well as representatives from health sector organisations, and Māori members of other medical colleges. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Committee (ATSIHC) was represented at the Hui by Dr Naru Pal.
The report opens with an overview of Te Tiriti o Waitangi/The Treaty of Waitangi, before considering the location and place of the Hui – Te Manukanuka o Hoturoa marae in Mangere. Our Hui consisted of three sessions, which are captured in this report: Ko Aotearoa Tēnei: Resetting the Foundations of the Institution; WAI 2575 Inquiry into Health Services and Outcomes for Māori; and a Mana Taurite/Health Equity panel, featuring representatives from a diverse range of organisations, all with a common aim of achieving health equity for Māori.
This report acts as the record of our Hui, and seeks to capture and preserve as much of the valuable discussions, questions and challenges to the RACP for a wider audience as possible.
