Postgraduate study in Māori Health

You can study Māori Health as part of the Postgraduate Diploma in Public Health in Māori Health.

The courses for this specialisation in the public health programme emphasise an approach to Māori health that is evidence-based, affirms Māori rights, and is centred on a critical analysis of ethnic inequalities in health.

This approach examines the unequal social distribution of health resources and determinants to identify how inequalities in health are created and maintained, and how they can be reduced and eliminated.

The courses emphasise kaupapa Māori approaches to population health sciences such as:

  • Epidemiology
  • Health research and evaluation
  • Health servicing and planning provision
  • Health policy
  • Health promotion
