The Wellington Faculty of Health has two centres—the Health Services Research Centre and the National Centre for Women's Health Research Aotearoa.

Health Services Research Centre

The Health Services Research Centre—Te Hikuwai Rangahau Hauora focuses on the study of the health and disability needs of communities, and the organisation, planning, provision, use, and effectiveness of personal and population-based health and disability services.

The Centre's research spans six key topics:

  • Māori health
  • health system and health services research and evaluation
  • priority setting research and evaluation
  • access research and evaluation
  • Pacific health
  • disability issues.

National Centre for Women’s Health Research Aotearoa

The National Centre for Women’s Health Research Aotearoa—Te Tātai Hauora o Hine was established in 2017 and has a proud tradition of research into health issues relevant to women, particularly those for Māori women in New Zealand.
