could cost it $130m in health funding
South Auckland's poor 2018 census turnout could have cost the region $130 million in health funding.
And, according to an expert, that cash could have helped tackle the area's battles with diabetes and obesity.
Te Whatu Ora Health New Zealand said the defunct Counties Manukau District Health Board lost $130m in health funding in its last four years due to the low turnout in the area during the 2018 census.
