Māori Health Research
The HRC produces a number of Māori health research related publications and policies including a regular newsletter, Pānui, and various guidelines which outline key information relating to Māori health research and funding applications.
This quarterly e-newsletter outlines Māori health research issues, describes HRC-funded Māori health research studies, and profiles Māori health researchers and teams. It also provides important information about Māori health research funding opportunities.

Pānui e-newsletter issues:
Ngā Pou Rangahau sets the direction for Māori health research over the next five years, informing the HRC's decisions (not only those affecting Maori health research), and providing a basis upon which the HRC operates as it continues its contribution to improving the health of Māori.
These Guidelines intend to assist researchers undertaking biomedical, public health or clinical research involving Maori participants or research on issues relevant to Maori health. These Guidelines will inform researchers about consultation and the processes involved in initiating consultation with Maori. It is expected that all those who undertake research involving Maori will read these Guidelines prior to making a submission to an ethics committee.
Hui Whakapiripiri 2014 was held on 9–10 July at the Waipuna Hotel and Conference Centre, Auckland. The hui involved keynote speakers and panels, and concurrent speakers. Te Pou Here or the theme for Hui Whakapiripiri 2014 was Research aspiration, inspiration and innovation, Ma te ara auaha he kauanuanu te oranga a te tangata, which was the kind contribution of Mr Beau Haereroa (Ngāti Porou, Te Aowera), HRC Kaumatua (elder).
This document outlines a framework for addressing Māori ethical issues within the context of decision-making by ethics committee members. It draws on a foundation of tikanga Māori (Māori protocols and practices) and will be useful for researchers, ethics committee members and those who engage in consultation or advice about Māori ethical issues from a local, regional, national, and/or international perspective.
This publication provides those with an interest in Māori health research with an overview of the HRC’s activities in Māori health research, and information on the various forms of funding available including career development awards.
