He taonga te hauora (Health is wealth)
For the past 12-months a team from Sapere, including David Moore, Preston Davies, and Jamie O’Hare, has assessed Māori employment and business ownership outcomes in the health sector. The mahi sought to shed light on the prevailing landscape of Māori employment and business ownership in the sector. It delved into the key challenges that impede greater Māori participation, while also identifying key opportunities for growth. By harnessing these invaluable insights, the mahi culminated in a rautaki (strategy) that aims to drive a substantial improvement in both business ownership and employment outcomes for the Māori community, while also acknowledging te ao Māori health principles.
