Health, Cultural and Social Experiences of Māori affected by Chemical Related Illness

Toxins

2006 - 2008  |  Health Research Council of New Zealand

The research project described the views of Māori toward involuntary, chronic chemical exposures (as workers, whānau, and community), and their views of appropriate healing that needs to take place . The three specific exposure groups selected for analysis in this report were: interviewees living along the Whanganui Awa, sawmill workers, Vietnam veterans, and whānau. This project also outlined a framework/model of Māori Health for Chemical Related Illness and Disease.
