Te Ao Māori perspectives of what works to support wellbeing in the first thousand days examines the evidence of how to support tamariki wellbeing in the first 1000 days from a Te Ao Māori perspective.
This research examines the strength of the existing evidence, and identifies critical evidence gaps in relation to the wellbeing of māmā hapū, pēpi, tamariki and whānau across the critical and sensitive first 1000 days of the life-course.
Our search strategy was designed to identify health and/or social interventions that target Māori end-users during the hapūtanga, pēpi, and tamariki stages of life.
The PRISMA guidelines were used to ensure a comprehensive and systematic approach to our reporting.
We used the 2009 PRISMA protocols to search the following electronic databases: New Zealand Index, Pub Med, and Scopus for publications between the 1st January 2000 and 31st December 2021.
There is a shortage of evidence from a Te Ao Māori perspective, and existing evidence is often deficit framed.
