"We are still operating under the fallacy
that one size fits all.

A national programme, while necessary,
will lead to exacerbate health inequities.

 
While things are being done for the general population, they don't have an equity lens,
which is essential from the beginning."
- Professor Papaarangi Reid 
 Te Rōpu Whakakaupapa Urutā is made up of some of the nation’s leading Māori medical and health experts including Primary Care Specialists, Public Health experts, Public Health Physicians, Māori Nurses and iwi leaders.
