Racism and Māori health: recent evidence and future directions
Dr Donna Cormack and Dr Ricci Harris

Racism is recognised as a determinant of health and a fundamental driver of ethnic inequalities. There has been a significant increase in research documenting the negative health impacts of racism internationally. However, studies of the impacts of racism on Māori health, or within the New Zealand context more generally, are limited. This presentation will outline findings from recent research in New Zealand on racism and Māori health. We will discuss results from our work on self-reported experience of racism and its relationship to a range of health outcomes and healthcare measures. We will also present findings from our recent work on relationships between socially-assigned ethnicity, ethnic density, and racial discrimination.

Dr Donna Cormack is a Māori health researcher at the Eru Pomare Māori Health Research Centre, University of Otago (Wellington). She is involved in research the health impacts of racism and the conceptualisation and measurement of ethnicity.
Dr Ricci Harris is a public health physician and Senior Research Fellow at the Eru Pomare Māori Health Research Centre. Her research focuses on Maori health and ethnic health inequalities in New Zealand, with a particular emphasis on the impacts of racism.
