Health Research Council. 'Māori Health Advancement Guidelines' (2019)
Alignment with the Māori Health Advancement criterion as well as other assessment criteria will strengthen an application to the Health Research Council. Importantly, the new approach will give applicants clearer guidance and a framework in which they can contribute to improving Maori health, while enabling the HRC to clearly evaluate the degree to which its investment delivers on this objective. These guidelines support health researchers in describing how their proposed research fits within the criterion.

This report describes the He Awa Whiria – Braided Rivers model of using Western science and mātauranga Māori knowledge side-by-side for research and evaluation in the social sector. Western science and methods are often given prominence over all other systems of knowledge. While Māori do well in society, there continues to be an over-representation of Māori in negative statistics. If the social sector is to achieve a research-based understanding of the underlying causes of this situation, we need to acknowledge a te ao Māori worldview.

The Ministry of Health’s Māori Health Insights team has produced the Māori Health Trends Report, including several subject-specific modules, to inform the Wai 2575 Health Services and Outcomes Kaupapa Inquiry (Wai 2575). The report shows changes of Māori health over the years 1990–2015.
Te Ao Mārama 2016
Here is an updated collection of our statistics about Māori well-being and development from a Māori perspective. It is available in te reo Māori: Tirohia tēnei whārangi i te reo Māori.
‘Te ao mārama’ is a Māori concept relating to wisdom and understanding. It derives from the myth in which Tāne separated his Sky Father Ranginui and Earth Mother Papatuānuku to create ‘te ao mārama’ or the world of light. This allowed Tāne and his brothers to grow and better understand the world around them.
Statistics New Zealand collected information relating to Māori well-being in the 2013 Te Kupenga Survey. Since 2014, our annual survey Tatauranga Umanga Māori provides information about economic activity of Māori authorities.
Tatau Kahukura: Māori Health Chart Book 2015 (3rd Edition)
Presents a snapshot of the health of Māori compared with non-Māori. The chart book presents key indicators relating to the socioeconomic determinants of health, risk and protective factors for health, health status, health service use and the health system.
Statistics New Zealand
Maaori health and well being
Te Kupenga, a survey of Maaori well-being. Te Kupenga collected information on a wide range of topics to give an overall picture of the social, cultural, and economic well-being of Maaori in New Zealand. The survey also provides important information about the health of the Maaori language and culture.
The first release of information from Te Kupenga 2013 provides overview statistics on four areas of Maaori cultural well-being:
- wairuatanga (spirituality)
- tikanga (Maaori customs and practices)
- te reo Maaori (the Maaori language)
- whanaungatanga (social connectedness).
Maaori Health Plan Monitoring tool
A new web-based monitoring tool to improve access to health performance information.
The atlas collects together health, behaviour and socio-economic indicators for Māori. Most indicators compare Māori outcomes with those of non-Māori:
participation and attainment in science subjects (for students in years 11-13)
quit (smoking) attempts
risk behaviour (smoking/ gambling)
diabetes (crude rates derived from the virtual diabetes register)
Wiki New Zealand health data clearinghouse
Wiki New Zealand sources data from other organisations, including corporations, public repositories, government departments and academics.
We import that data into a powerful open source database, we carefully validate it and standardise it. We then make the data available in a series of standardised forms, both human and machine-readable, with rich metadata about the sources, licensing and datatypes.
We are a non-profit membership organisation of health services across Australia and New Zealand. We exist to:
Provide opportunities for health executives to learn how to achieve Best Practice in their organisations
Collect, analyse and publish information comparing organisations and identifying ways to improve operational practices
Promote interstate and international collaboration and networking amongst health organisation executives
Members are provided with a wide range of documents and presentations that identify innovations in health care practice, as well as comparative information and meeting notes. Any staff member from a member health service can access these reports by registering for access with their health service email address.
89 health service organisations across Australia and New Zealand are currently members of The Health Roundtable. Many health service members have multiple facilities. A total of 155 facilities currently provide data for comparative analysis.

Experiences of Māori of Aotearoa New Zealand's public health system: a systematic review of two decades of published qualitative research (2020)
Australia and New Zealand Journal of Public Health
This paper aims to synthesise the broader perspectives of Māori patients and their whānau (extended family, family group) of their treatment within the public health system. Our research question was ‘What are the experiences of Māori in the public health and/or hospital system in Aotearoa New Zealand?’
A window on the quality of Aotearoa New Zealand's health care 2019 – a view on Māori health equity
Every year the Commission publishes a document we call A window on the quality of Aotearoa New Zealand’s health care. The Window provides a snapshot of the quality of health care in the country. While equity has always been a component of the report’s analysis over its four-year history, this year’s report focuses solely on equity.
A window on the quality of Aotearoa New Zealand’s health care 2019 – a view on Māori health equity (Window 2019) highlights a number of areas where change is needed in the health system. The report is divided into three chapters. The first analyses inequity between how Māori and non-Māori access and receive health services, and the effects on equity of improvement activities in our system. The second chapter asks why these inequities exist, and the third chapter addresses opportunities for improvement.

Funded by the Ministry of Health, The aim of this project was to answer the question, How can access to health services be improved for Māori? The focus of the project was on cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, and there were three objectives.
Increase the health sector’s understanding of the issues affecting Māori access to health services
Provide an evidence base for action to improve access to health services for Māori
Provide solutions to improve access to health services for Māori
In addition to literature reviews on interventions to improve access to diabetes, cardiovascular and cancer health care, key informants were interviewed for their views about improving access to health services. Individual reports were produced in each area, as well as an overall research report on improving Māori access to health care
