Racism in the health sector in Aotearoa - whose responsibility is it?
"The health sector in Aotearoa continues to nurture profound ethnic health inequities and institutional racism in health policy and practice. We have seen perpetual reforms, tweaks and restructures in the last twenty years. In light of the recent damning Waitangi Tribunal stage one WAI 2575 report it is clear that power-sharing needs to occur if we are to uphold the responsibilities and commitments outlined in Te Tiriti of Waitangi and the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Will the current reforms deliver the transformation that needs to occur in this space? What needs to be in place for the Health Authority to succeed? What does mana motuhake look like in this space? Why is cultural safety still important? Do we need a revolution? Whose responsibility is it to sort this racism?"
