E ngā mana, e ngā reo, tēnā koutou katoa.
Kia hiwa ra! Kia hiwa rā!
Te Whāriki Takapou is pleased to announce the release of the ‘Aotearoa New Zealand People Living with HIV Stigma Index: Māori Participants Report’, a report on HIV-related stigma and discrimination experienced by Māori people living with HIV.
Produced by Te Whāriki Takapou as a companion report to the ‘Aotearoa New Zealand People Living with HIV Stigma Index’ released on World AIDS Day 2020, the Māori Participant Report adopts the vision of He Korowai Oranga – Pae Ora or Healthy Futures – to explore the health and wellbeing of Māori people living with HIV – as individuals and as members of whānau, and the extent to which they are supported and resourced to live healthy lives and achieve their potential as Māori.
We could not think of a more appropriate day to launch this report than Waitangi Day, as we collectively work towards achieving our aspirations for good health and wellbeing for Māori, including eliminating HIV related stigma and discrimination.
