Research for Improved Māori Child Health Outcomes

The Whakawhetū research plan seeks to source, review and disseminate SUDI related research to enable health professionals to support Māori whānau reduce the risk of SUDI for their babies. We do this through drawing on evidence based research that then informs key messages appropriately targeted to a wide range of stakeholders from whānau to health professionals.
