The DHB Māori Health Profiles present a snapshot of Māori health compared with non-Māori across a range of health and disability related indicators for each of the 20 district health boards.
The profiles were commissioned by the Ministry of Health and have been produced by Te Rōpū Rangahau Hauora a Eru Pōmare of the University of Otago.
All the DHB Māori Health Profiles are available on the University of Otago website along with the full suite of data tables.
These profiles build on earlier DHB Māori Health Needs Assessments produced by Massey University
How can the profiles be used as a resource?
The profiles will be useful to DHBs as part of their annual planning process and to monitor and measure progress in their Māori Health Plans, Annual Plans and Regional Service Plans. The profiles are also a useful resource to the Ministry of Health and the wider health sector in providing consistent health-related statistics for all 20 DHBs.
