Hapū Ora draws on life course, epigenetic and social determinants approaches, along with Māori concepts of pregnancy and wellbeing, to identify key priorities for future Māori maternal health research.
Using a framework that ranges from macro level factors (governance and policy) to micro level considerations (specific health needs of Māori mothers and their children), four key research priorities have been identified for further study.
- Priority One: Data collection for effective research, monitoring and evaluation
- Priority Two: Addressing societal conditions
- Priority Three: Supporting mother, baby and whānau
- Priority Four: Improving services - best practice for maternal and new-born services
