Review of the Ministry’s equity response to COVID-19

In 2022 Te Rau Ora were commissioned by the Ministry of Health to conduct a review of the Ministry’s covid-19/Omicron response. A total of 33 interviews were conducted with whānau, community stakeholders and health providers in Pacific, dis-abled and Māori communities. The findings show that the Ministry of Health did not take equity into account when responding to Covid-19 and ten recommendations are made.

The report is in three parts; a powerpoint, a graphic narrative and an animation and should be viewed together for an overall picture of the findings.
