Indigenous voices on measuring and valuing health states
This article sets out to start a conversation around what an Indigenous measure of health might look like and how it might value key dimensions of health. Within a Kaupapa Māori theoretical paradigm, in-depth interviews were conducted with six Māori key informants who had cared for whānau (family) members through illness to give voice to dimensions of health and illness that Western economic measures of health fail to capture.
