Māori and Pasifika's

community health clout

Māori and Pacific communities achieved impressive outcomes with Covid-19 vaccination. Mobilising their great knowledge, expertise, and experience could go a long way to tackling rheumatic fever.

Comment: The Covid-19 pandemic showcased how critical Pacific leaders, health providers, community groups and churches were in ensuring the community was protected and vaccinated, achieving a 90 percent vaccination rate among Pacific people by the end of 2021.

It demonstrated the power of communities in public health, an approach that could and should be used to reduce the high rates of rheumatic fever in Aotearoa New Zealand.
