Dr Ashley Bloomfield Director General of Health talks with Dale Husband
Dr Ashley Bloomfield says the Maori rates of vaccinations is encouraging but it needs to increase with younger Maori. He says Maori communities care about their whakapapa and that was shown with the Iwi border controls. Dr Bloomfied says “communities are a huge resource but sometimes we don’t tap into them. If we resource those providers and communities and give them the tools and funding they need then they get the results”.
