RACP Statement on Indigenous Child Health in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand

NZNO welcomes your feedback on this draft statement on indigenous child health in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand. The statement has been developed by paediatricians with expertise in Māori, Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander health.

Please note a recent media statement from the RACP highlights that the COVID-19 pandemic may exacerbate existing inequities in Aotearoa New Zealand without the right exit strategy, and that the campaign to #MakeHealthEquityTheNorm is more important now than ever. The RACP is calling for the exit strategy to keep health equity – particularly in housing, work and wellbeing – as the central guiding principle.

The draft statement for review can be viewed below.

Please send feedback to by 27 May 2020.
