Manatū Hauora – the Ministry of Health commissioned Te Rau Ora to carrying out independent research into the August 2021 COVID-19 Delta outbreak health response, with a specific focus on how successful the response was in delivering equitable outcomes for Te Tiriti o Waitangi partners and whānau and Pacific community stakeholders and families.

For this review, Te Rau Ora spoke to 14 whānau, 25 community stakeholders, and four mainstream health providers. The majority of those interviewed were Māori or Pacific people and eight had a disability or looked after someone who did.

This research provides recommendations to reduce inequities associated with any future pandemics.
