The State of the Nation - Child Poverty in NZ 2014

A summary essay of Professor Innes Asher's address to the Paediatric Society of New Zealand’s Annual Scientific Meeting in November 2014. 

"A beautiful young Māori woman I know died this year from bronchiectasis. Three months before she died she said:

'Poverty is our reality – it doesn’t have to be our reality.

Bronchiectasis is our reality – it doesn’t have to be our reality'

 She was right. This essay is dedicated to her."

Professor Innes Asher, CPAG Health Spokesperson
