Te Tohu Rapuora

Health Research Council of New Zealand Award.
This award recognises the contribution to Māori health research leadership of an individual, research team, or community group.

Award details

Discipline: Medical and health sciences

Award offered: Yearly

Prize: Award

Te Tohu Rapuora will be awarded to an individual, research team, or community group, whose work has demonstrated leadership, excellence, and contribution to advancing Māori health and/or knowledge. The recipient(s) will have worked in partnership with iwi or hapū, community, or other Māori health stakeholders in making their contribution to Māori health. The award is also intended to recognise recipients who have ensured the translation and dissemination of their findings to maximise the uptake and impact of their work for the benefit of Māori.

The work being recognised must have demonstrated fostering of the capacity and capability of the Māori health research workforce, beyond the nominee’s own research career.

The award is intended to recognise research that is Māori-led, however a research team or community group that is inclusive of non-Māori may be nominated.

As this annual award may recognise an accumulated body of research or life-time contribution, nominations may be received for work undertaken at any time.
