Te Urungi Māori

Te Urungi: the steering paddle of the waka which supports the work of the kaihoe by guiding the course.

Te Urungi Māori is an integral yet independent group at the Malaghan Institute, providing advice to the leadership team, with an overall approach of equitable health outcomes for Māori as a result of our research and clinical activity. Te Urungi also provides guidance on engagement with and implementation of the articles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and Vision Mātauranga.
