The Faculty of Heath has two centres—the Health Services Research Centre and the Centre for Women's Health Research.
The Health Services Research Centre — Te Hikuwai Rangahau Hauora focuses on the study of the health and disability needs of communities, and the organisation, planning, provision, use and effectiveness of personal and population-based health and disability services.
The Centre's research spans six key topics:
- Māori health
- health system and health services research and evaluation
- priority setting research and evaluation
- access research and evaluation
- Pacific health
- disability issues.
The Centre for Women’s Health Research —Te Tātai Hauora o Hine was established in 2017 and has a proud tradition of research into health issues relevant to women, particularly those for Māori women in New Zealand.
