This is the second literature review in the Ao Mai te Rā series. This review explores best practice approaches to addressing racism in all its forms.
This review draws on the recommended anti-racism definition outlined in Stage One Literature Review – Evolution of Racism and Anti-Racism and examines the key levers for change necessary to put aspects of the anti-racism definition into practice. The review also leverages insights from health system experts on the practical considerations that must be taken into account when applying a specific lever to a health system setting.
The review concludes by offering recommendations on a suite of levers for change that are necessary if the health system is to develop an anti-racism model that is consistent with the articles and principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
This literature review is part of an integrated portfolio of work for phase one of Ao Mai te Rā and was completed by researchers at the University of Canterbury and Tokona Te Raki Māori Futures Collective, on behalf of the Ministry of Health.
