Bula Sautu – A window on quality 2021: Pacific health in the year of COVID-19 | Bula Sautu – He mata kounga 2021...

9 Dec 2021

In our ongoing Window on Quality series, Bula Sautu uses national data to show the complex contributing factors that impact on health for Pacific peoples, from maternity to end of life, using a life-course approach. The report brings together a diverse range of Pacific health and equity experts to share their views of how effectively (or ineffectively) the health system is performing for Pacific peoples.

Bula Sautu shows us some of the worst inequities in our health care system but also profiles providers, communities and individuals responding creatively, brilliantly and vibrantly within the constraints imposed upon them.

The report proposes changes to be made by the New Zealand health system in four key areas, and some early steps for this change. It also outlines a seven-step framework for health sector organisations and services to address Pacific health.

Bula Sautu is the product of a partnership and co-development process between Corina Grey, Debbie Ryan and Api Talemaitoga for Pacific Perspectives and the Health Quality & Safety Commission.
