Maori Health Research on MMR

Measles Mumps & Rubella Rangatahi Survey

In partnership with the Bay of Plenty District Health Board

Ko ngā rangatahi, ngā rangitira mō āpōpō.

In 2019 Aotearoa had a major measles outbreak. Māori were disproportionately affected during this time, and to address this, Te Puna Ora o Mataatua is rethinking how we deliver MMR Vaccines.

Between May and August this year we ran an MMR Rangatahi Survey.

A total of 849 Rangatahi Māori completed the survey from all over the rohe, providing helpful insights around the numbers of rangatahi Māori that are fully vaccinated against MMR and the attitudes towards vaccination amongst rangatahi Māori. 

This data will now be used to develop Māori-centred approaches to increasing MMR vaccination rates.

To all 1078 rangatahi who participated in this survey – your whakaaro is greatly appreciated and valued by our team, ngā mihi nui ki a koutou!
