PROSTABLOG NZ: A new $20 million “Maori health innovations fund” has been announced by the Associate Minister of Health, Tariana Turia – but it makes no mention of one of the biggest killers of Maori men, prostate cancer.
The press release says:
The Fund is a significant step toward realising the aspirations of He Korowai Oranga (the Māori Health Strategy) and advancing whānau ora by supporting Māori service providers to develop and implement initiatives that effectively meet the health needs of whānau, hapū, iwi and their wider communities.
Over the next four years the Fund will invest a total of $20 million in the design, development, promotion and delivery of innovative whānau ora driven health services.
