Mortality high in Te Tai Rāwhiti

Māori Health Statistics show Te Tai Rāwhiti has the highest rate of mortality across NZ with more than a third above the national rate.

Tūranga Health CEO Reweti Ropiha says when it comes to the next MP running the Ikaroa-Rāwhiti electorate he expects they'll support his health provider who have long been working to change these shocking statistics.
