Jansen made distinguished fellow of GP College
The Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners has awarded Māori health advocate Dr Rawiri McKree Jansen a Distinguished Fellowship.
Auckland-based Dr Jansen from Ngāti Raukawa and Ngāti Hinerangi is the clinical director of the National Hauora Coalition – a network of 54 GP practices, serving over 220,000 patients across five district health boards.
He is also co-chair of Māori pandemic response group Te Rōpū Whakakaupapa Urutā.
College president Dr Samantha Murton says his significant contributions to hauora Māori at both grassroots and national levels speak volumes about his passion for improving equity within New Zealand’s health system.
Dr Rachel Mackie, who chairs the college’s Māori representative group Te Akoranga a Māui, says, Dr Jansen is a leader and a strong and effective communicator for what he believes in – tino rangatiratanga.
