    Concerns over inequity between Maori and non-Maori cancer survival rates

    Concerns over inequity between Maori and non-Maori cancer survival rates


    An Otago University researcher says New Zealand's healthcare system is failing Maori cancer patients - because it was designed for the European population.

    Dr Jason Gurney claims he has disproved previous theories that Maori patients have a higher mortality rate because they are diagnosed too late.

    Gurney says the Cancer Control Agency's new Action plan must seek to support Maori.

    He says as a society we need to make a choice not to accept these inequities, particularly for our indigenous population.
