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

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.

Centre for Women’s Health Research

The Centre for Women’s Health Research —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.
