I write in response to your Official Information Act request, which we received on 19 September 2018. This was a partial transfer, under section 14 of the Act of your request to the Ministry of Health
on 07 September. The Ministry of Health advised that they believed DHBs were best placed to provide information on these two requests:
(i) What criteria is used by the MoH and District Health Boards (DHBs) to determine if an organisation meets criteria to be considered (and funded as) a Māori provider?
(ii) How many Māori providers funded by MoH and/or DHBs are there nationally? Please provide a list of these.
Our response is attached
