Summary

This report, which focuses on the underlying determinants of health for Māori children and young people, aims to:

  1. Provide a snapshot of progress in addressing many of the determinants of health including child poverty and living standards, housing, early childhood education, oral health, tobacco use, alcohol related harm, and children’s exposure to family violence.
  2. Assist those working in the health sector to consider the roles other agencies play in influencing child and youth health outcomes related to these determinants.

In exploring the underlying determinant of health for Māori children and young people, each of the indicators in this year’s report has been assigned to one of four sections:

  • The wider macroeconomic and policy context
  • Socioeconomic and cultural determinants
  • Risk and protective factors
  • Health outcomes as determinants.
