The Health Quality & Safety Commission (HQSC ) have published A window on the quality of Aotearoa New Zealand’s health care 2019 – a view on Māori health equity, a 72-page document.

Every year HQSC publishes a document that provides a snapshot of the quality of health care in the country – this year’s report focuses on equity for Māori.
