E27 13 August 2021: Māori News

  • This week a research company has released a report looking at the potential underfunding of Māori Primary Health Organisations (PHOs). The genesis for this is a Waitangi Tribunal recommendation within the Hauora Inquiry Report that consideration be given to this topic (Pānui 24/2019 outlines this inquiry).  The research company involved gives an indicative estimate -based on a few assumptions around service uptake and life/death costs – that the investment needed per annum for Māori PHOs is circa $1 billion, and the cost of not making this investment might be circa $5 billion per year.    These are of course indicative figures, but they give the Waitangi Tribunal claimants a starting point for their discussions with the Government as to what is needed.  This is a technical report which we consider likely adds a useful contribution to these negotiations, although we suspect Government analysts may well apply other methods to derive different figures.  Regardless, it is the next step in a process of better empowering Māori organisations to facilitate stronger wellness outcomes for Māori. https://srgexpert.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/Methodology-for-Estimating-the-Underfunding-of-Maori-Primary-Health-Care.pdf
