Masters Thesis

It is now widely recognised that the current healthcare model does not meet the needs of Māori. The focus is now shifting to healthcare along tikanga Māori guidelines, which incorporate whanau, marae, hapu and iwi. While there are a small but growing number of Māori healthcare clinics they are still built along conventional medical guidelines.My proposal is to design a healthcare facility that is derived from the Māori (iwi/hapu) perspective. I propose to use tikanga or kawa to determine the functionality of the project. This project will be specifically aimed at healthcare for Māori.
