The Ministry of Health contracted with the Wellington School of Medicine and Health Sciences in 2004 to undertake a research project focussed on reviewing available baseline cancer data and its quality for Māori and non-Māori, identifying the range of interventions to address barriers to access for Māori, and assessing barriers to access and recommended interventions.
The research was undertaken by researchers at the Wellington School of Medicine and Health Sciences and the Auckland University of Technology (AUT) and aims to contribute to the reduction of inequality in cancer outcomes for Māori. This report helped inform the New Zealand Cancer Control Strategy Action Plan: 2005-2010.
