‘Window’ on Pacific peoples’ health calls for urgent system change

6 Jul 2021 | Health Quality Intelligence


English version

A new report paints a stark picture of the health care challenges faced by Pacific peoples in New Zealand and calls for ambitious changes to the system to be made urgently.

Bula Sautu: A window on quality 2021: Pacific health in the year of COVID-19 was launched today in Parliament by Minister for Pacific Peoples Hon Aupito William Sio. The report is the latest in a series of ‘window’ publications from the Health Quality & Safety Commission (the Commission). It considers the health of Pacific peoples and provides a snapshot view of how the health system is working (or not working) for them.

The report is the product of a partnership and co-development process between the Commission and Drs Corina Grey, Api Talemaitoga, and Debbie Ryan. It includes contributions from many Pacific health and community leaders, clinicians and health workers. The Commission convened a consumer advisory group comprised of Pacific consumers on 27 May 2021 to respond to the findings of Bula Sautu. This group has developed a set of practical recommendations to further advance the report’s findings.

Bula Sautu highlights some of the worst health care inequities in New Zealand affecting Pacific peoples and the lack of discussion of these inequities in the ongoing health system reforms. The report also profiles providers, communities and individuals responding creatively and effectively within the constraints imposed upon them. This was particularly evident during the COVID-19 response, when innovation flourished.

Associate Professor of Public Health Collin Tukuitonga, Associate Dean Pacific at the University of Auckland and a Commission board member, says Pacific peoples who call Aotearoa New Zealand home have been denied their right to health and wellbeing for decades despite clear evidence that inequities exist in almost all health conditions reported.

‘Pacific peoples are expected to navigate through a health system that has not been designed with or for them. Many have to effectively look after themselves, as it is impossible for them to overcome the many barriers to accessing health care. These shortcomings reflect systematic bias and racism in the New Zealand health and disability system and the lack of diversity in the health workforce.

‘We need a health system that enables Pacific peoples to identify and design Pacific solutions. Leaders and decision-makers in our training establishments and professions must take decisive action to support and grow the Pacific workforce required at all levels of the system. And we need to turn around the unacceptable racism of our system; it drives inequitable health care processes and outcomes, and is enabled by the structure of the system.’

Dr Corina Grey, Pacific Health Data and Insights Lead at Auckland District Health Board, and co-author of the report, says within the health sector there are a number of key actions organisations and individual services can take, many of them within existing resources. These actions are presented in the report as a framework to improve Pacific health.

‘These key actions focus on knowing the data; delivering holistic and integrated care; improving access to health services; respectful and authentic engagement with Pacific consumers and communities; simple, clear communication; and support of the Pacific workforce,’ she says.

'The strengths of Pacific providers and communities were highlighted during the response to COVID-19. Pacific health and social service providers worked together with church and other community leaders to rapidly set up testing services, tailor support for contact tracing, and deliver food packages and masks to communities, working collaboratively with community leaders and other agencies to provide holistic and integrated models of care.’

Dr Api Talemaitoga, a general practitioner, chair of the Pacific General Practitioners’ Network and co-author of the report, says initiatives such as this show change is possible.

‘However, improvements in Pacific health and a reduction in health inequities will not happen without an ambitious change and transformation agenda.

‘A strategy based on “business as usual” will not give us the change required.’

Pacific innovation

Below are snapshots of other innovative approaches showcased in this report.

Dr Maryann Heather – GP, South Seas Healthcare, Otara, Auckland; senior lecturer Pacific health, School of Population Health, University of Auckland

‘In terms of our high rates of immunisations for children, I give credit to our practice nurses because they’re the ones that make sure that all our kids get the immunisations. They do the recalls. They’ll call, they’ll send people around. That comes down to relationships. Our parents and our grandparents know the benefit of vaccinations. Often, a lot of the time when we ask them, we tell them why it’s important, and they really listen.’

Sinia Saafi, community health worker, Alliance Health Plus Primary Health Organisation

‘The key for me was working through the churches. You need that time for the health worker to go in there and work with the community from the inside out. People are hungry for personal connection, because the personal connection with a health worker gives them confidence.’

Dr Api Talemaitoga, GP, chair of the Pacific General Practitioners’ Network

‘Rates of vaccination for human papillomavirus (HPV) in Pacific peoples improved when the Ministry of Health and the Health Promotion Agency worked to ensure the messages were culturally appropriate.

‘A campaign tailored for Pacific peoples was developed with pictures of Pacific families. The message was reframed from appealing to the individual teenager to one about future protection and health of Pacific families.

“Messages were delivered in Samoan, Tongan and Fijian languages. Immunisation messaging focused on families worked.’

Manogi Eiao, pre-dialysis nurse specialist, renal services, Counties Manukau DHB

‘Money is a big problem. That’s what holds a lot of people back – they have no time off work, or they don’t have any sick leave. They need to go to work to get that money, to pay the bills, to feed the family and they “neglect” their health. They “neglect” their appointments.

‘We’re open 8:00am to 4:30pm, but if I recognise a family is struggling, I’ll go out and do a home visit at 6:00pm.

‘Our nurse practitioner does Saturday clinics. She’ll see a lot of patients who can’t make it during the week. It’s trying to work with our patients and fit in with their lives.’

Examples of inequities facing Pacific peoples

  • Pacific peoples live, on average, six fewer years than non-Māori non-Pacific.
  • Less than half (47 percent) of pregnant Pacific women were registered with a lead maternity carer (LMC) in 2018, compared with 81 percent of non-Māori, non-Pacific women.
  • Pacific women subsequently experience more complications during pregnancy, more intensive interventions during and after birth, and worse outcomes for both mother and baby than other ethnicities.
  • Only 59 percent of Pacific families of infants in their first year of life received all their Well Child/Tamariki Ora core contacts, compared with 81 percent of non-Māori, non-Pacific families.
  • Pacific children subsequently experience a higher incidence of a range of conditions, including asthma, dental problems, and ear and skin infections, than children from other ethnic groups. Only 36 percent of five-year-old Pacific children are free of caries (tooth decay) compared with 69 percent of non-Māori, non-Pacific children.
  • There is a lack of national data on the health of Pacific youth but survey data suggests rising rates of depressive symptoms and attempted suicide in Pacific youth, and barriers to accessing health care.
  • For Pacific peoples some aspects of preventative health care, like flu immunisations, seem to perform well, but Pacific peoples bear a disproportionate burden of long-term conditions including gout, cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, cancer and asthma, and, in particular, diabetes. Those with diabetes experience a trifecta of issues:
    • earlier onset leading to earlier and worse complications
    • inadequate management and control of diabetes
    • worse hospitalisation rates relative to other ethnic groups.
  • Pacific peoples are significantly under-represented across the entire health workforce.

Te Reo Māori version

He pikitia kōhure te kī a tētahi pūrongo hou mō ngā mātātaki maimoa hauora ki ngā iwi o te Pasifika kei Aotearoa nei, ā, ka kī hoki kia kaha, kia tere hoki te tini i te pūnaha.

I whakamānutia te pūrongo Bula Sautu: A window on quality 2021: Pacific health in the year of COVID-19 i te Whare Paremata i tēnei rā e te Minita mō ngā Iwi Pasifika, e te Hōnore Aupito Wiremu Sio. Ko te pūrongo nei he pūrongo hou o ngā putanga ‘window’ nā te Kupu Taurangi Hauora o Aotearoa (te Komihana). Ka tirohia te hauora o ngā iwi Pasifika me tētahi tirohanga mō te pēhea o te pūnaha hauora e mahi ana (kāhore ana rānei) mā rātou.

Ko te pūrongo nei he hua o tētahi mahi ngātahi me tētahi tukanga whakawhanake i waenganui i te Komihana me Tākuta Corina Grey rātou ko Tākuta Api Talemaitoga ko Tākuta Debbie Ryan. Kei roto hoki ētahi whakaaro o te tokomaha, o ngā kaitātaki hauora Pasifika, rangatira o ngā hapori, ngā mātanga me ngā kaimahi hauora. Nā te Komihana tētahi rōpū tohutohu nō te iwi Pasifika i whakarite i te 27 o Haratua 2021 kia homai whakaaro mō ngā kitenga o Bula Sautu. Nā te rōpū nei i whakaputa ētahi tohutohu hei kōkiri tonu i ngā kitenga o te pūrongo.

Bula Sautu i whakapuaki ētahi o ngā rerekētanga tino kino o te maimoa hauora e pānga atu ana ki ngā iwi Pasifika me te kore kōrerorero mō ēnei rerekētanga i roto i ngā waihanga hou o te pūnaha hauora. Ka kōrero hoki te pūrongo mō ngā kaiwhakarato, ngā hapori me ngā tāngata e urupare pai ana, e urupare tōtika ana nō roto i ngā herenga i utaina ai ki runga i a rātou. I tino kitea tēnei auahatanga i te wā o te KORONA-19.

E mea mai ana a Ahonuku Collin Tukuitonga o te Hauora Tūmatanui, Ahonuku Pasifika i te Whare Wānanga o Ākarana me tētahi mema poari o te Komihana, ko ngā iwi Pasifika e kī ana ko Aotearoa tō rātou kāinga kua aukatihia ngā motika ki te hauora me te oranga mō ngā tekau tau maha, ahakoa te tino kitea o ngā rerekētanga i ngā āhua hauora i tuhia ai.

‘Ko te tikanga me whakatere ngā iwi Pasifika i tētahi pūnaha hauora i kore ai e hoahoatia mā rātou. Me whakaora rātou i a rātou anō, i te mea e kore e taea e rātou te tahuri i ngā aukati ki te maimoa hauora. Ka whakaatu ēnei tūāhua i ngā tātai rītaha me te kaikiri i roto i te pūnaha hauora, pūnaha hauā o Aotearoa me te korenga o te kanorau i te ohu mahi hauora.

‘Kei te hiahiatia e mātou he pūnaha hauora e taea ai e ngā iwi Pasifika te tautohu me te hoahoa ngā otinga Pasifika. Me mahi niwha ngā kaitātaki me ngā kaiwhakatau i ō tātou wāhi whakangungu me ngā umanga hei tautoko, hei whakatipu i te ohu mahi Pasifika ki ngā taumata katoa o te pūnaha. E hiahiatia ana hoki kia tahuri i te kaikiri o tā tātou pūnaha; koia e kōkiri ana i ngā tukanga rerekē me ngā putanga o te maimoa hauora, ā, e pērātia ana nā te hanga o te pūnaha.’

E mea mai ana a Tākuta Corina Grey, Kaihautū o Pacific Health Data and Insights i te Poari Hauora ā-rohe o Ākarana, tētahi kaituhi o te pūrongo, nō roto i te rāngai hauora he maha ngā tino mahi ka taea e ngā ratonga me ngā tāngata, he maha i ngā rauemi tonu. Kua whakaaturia ēnei mahi i te pūrongo hei anga ki te whakapai ake i te hauora Pasifika.

‘Ko ēnei tino mahi ka aronui atu ki te raraunga; te tuku maimoa hauora katoa, maimoa whātahi hoki; kia pai ake te tiki ratonga hauora; te hono tika, te hono whai ngākau ki ngā hapori Pasifika; kia māmā kia mārama te kōrero; ā, kia tautoko hoki i te ohu mahi Pasifika,’ hei tāna.

‘Ko te kaha o ngā kaiwhakarato Pasifika i tino kitea i te wā o te urupare ki te KORONA-19. I mahi tahi ngā ratonga hauora Pasifika, ngā ratonga pāpori me ngā minita karakia, ngā kaitātaki hapori hei tere whakarite ratonga whakamātautau, whakarite tautoko mō te takitaki me te tuku kai me ngā ārai kanohi ki ngā hapori, te mahi tahi me ngā kaitātaki hapori ki te whakarato i ngā tauira maimoa katoa, maimoa whātahi.’

E mea mai ana a Tākuta Api Talemaitoga, he tākuta whānau, te tiamana o te Pacific General Practitioners’ Network me te kaituhi o te pūrongo, ko ngā kaupapa pēnei e whakaatu ana i te āhei kia panoni.

‘Heoi anō, e kore e tutuki te whakapai hauora Pasifika me te whakaiti rerekētanga hauora ki te kore he kaupapa tino panoni.

Ko tētahi rautaki e kīia nei “ko taua mahi anō” e kore rawa e panoni e hiahiatia ana.’

Auahatanga Pasifika

I raro nei ko ngā pitopito kōrero mō ngā huarahi auaha ka kitea i tēnei pūrongo.

Dr Maryann Heather – Tākuta, South Seas Healthcare, Otara, Auckland; pūkenga hauora Pasifika, School of Population Health, Whare Wānanga o Tamaki Makaurau

‘Mō ngā whakatō kano ārai mate mā ngā tamariki, me whakamihi au i ā mātou nēhi i te mea ko rātou e kaha nei te mahi kia whai ārai mate ngā tamariki. Nā rātou i whai. Ka waea atu, ka tukua he tangata kia haere. Nā te whanaungatanga tērā. Ka mōhio ō tātou mātou, tīpuna ki te hua o ngā kano āraihanga mate. Rite tonu ina pātai atu ki a rātou, ka mea atu mātou he aha e mātuatua ai, ā, ka tino whakarongo rātou.’

Sinia Saafi, kaimahi hauora hapori, Alliance Health Plus Primary Health Organisation

‘Ko te tino ki ahau ko te mahi mā ngā whare karakia. Me whai wā ngā kaimahi hauora ki te uru ki te hapori, ki reira mahi ai mai roto ki waho. Kei te kaikā ngā tāngata kia noho kanohi ki te kanohi, i te mea mā te hono ā-kanohi ka tū māia te kaimahi hauora.’

Dr Api Talemaitoga, Tākuta, Tiamana o te Pacific General Practitioners’ Network

‘I haere pai ake te mahi whakatō kano ārai mate mō te papillomavirus (HPV) i ngā iwi Pasifika i te wā i kaha mahi te Manatū Hauora me Te Hiringa Hauora kia tika ngā kōrero ahurea.

‘I whakawhanakehia he kaupapa whakamataara e hāngai ana ki ngā iwi Pasifika me ngā whakaahua o ngā whānau Pasifika. I huri te kōrero mai i te whakararata taiohi takitahi ki te whakamarumaru āmua me te hauora o ngā whānau Pasifika.

‘I tukua te kōrero ki te reo Hāmoa, reo Tonga me te reo Whiti. I whaihua te kōrero whakatō kano ārai mate i hāngai ki ngā whānau.’

Manogi Eiao, mātanga nēhi pre-dialysis, ratonga tākihi, Counties Manukau DHB

‘He raru nui tō te moni. Koia e pupuri whakamuri ana i te tangata – kāore i whai wāhi whakatā i te mahi, kāore rānei he utu ina māuiui rātou. Me haere ki te mahi kia riro i taua moni hei utu nama, hei whāngai i te whānau, ka mutu, ka “wareware” tō rātou hauora. Ka “wareware” ā rātou hui whakarite.

‘Ka tuwhera te whare mai i te 8.00 ki te 4.30, engari ina kite au kua raru tētahi whānau, ka haere atu ki te kāinga ā te 6.00pm.

‘Ka mahi tā mātou mātanga nēhi i ngā Rāhoroi. Ka kitea e ia ngā tāngata tokomaha i kore ai i taea te haramai i ngā rā o te wiki. Ko te tikanga ka mahi tahi me ā mātou tūroro ki tā rātou e taea ai.’

He tauira o ngā rerekētanga ki ngā iwi Pasifika

  • Ka ora ngā iwi Pasifika e ono tau iti iho o ngā tāngata ehara i te Māori, ehara i te Pasifika.
  • Iti iho i te haurua (47 ōrau) o wāhine Pasifika e hapū ana i rēhita ki tētahi kaimaimoa ōmahu (LMC) i 2018,  whakataurite atu ana ki te 81 ōrau mō ngā whānau ehara i te Māori, ehara i te Pasifika.
  • Nā whai anō he nui atu ngā pōauautanga ka wheakohia e ngā wāhine Pasifika i te wā hapūtanga, ā, nui atu hoki i te whakawhānau pēpi a muri hoki, kino iho ngā hua mō te māmā me te pēpi i tā ērā atu iwi.
  • E 59 ōrau noa iho o ngā whānau Pasifika o ngā kōhungahunga i te tau tuatahi o te oranga i riro mai he āwhina a Tamariki Ora, whakataurite atu ana ki te 81 ōrau mō ngā whānau ehara i te Māori, ehara i te Pasifika.
  • Nā whai anō ka nui atu te wheako a ngā tamariki Pasifika ki ngā āhua pēnei i te huangō, raru niho, mate taringa, mate kiri i ngā wheako a ngā tamariki o iwi kē. E 36 ōrau noa iho o ngā tamariki Pasifika rima tau ka wātea i te niho pirau whakataurite atu ana ki te 69 ōrau o ngā tamariki ehara i te Māori, ehara i te Pasifika.
  • Karekau he raraunga ā-motu mō te hauora o ngā taiohi Pasifika engari e ai ki te kōrero kei te piki haere ngā tohu pōuri, ngā tohu whakamomori o ngā taiohi Pasifika, me te āhei kia riro maimoa hauora.
  • Mō ētahi iwi Pasifika kei te pai haere pea ētahi o ngā mahi maimoa hauora, pērā i te wero ārai rewharewha, engari ka kaha pāngia ngā iwi Pasifika ki ngā mate roa tae atu ki te kauti, mate iaia-manawa, mate tākihi, mate pukupuku, me te huangō, ā, te mate huka hoki. Ko ērā ka pāngia ki te mate huka e toru ngā mate ka utaina ki a rātou:
    • te pānga moata kia kino ake te mate
    • tē pai o te whakahaere mate huka
    • te tokomaha ake ka noho hōhipera i ērā atu iwi
  • He tokoiti ngā iwi Pasifika ka kitea i te whānuitanga o te ohu mahi.
