A study at Whangarei hospital has found Maori living in crowded conditions in state houses are suffering worse health issues than those in crowded private housing. The findings of the pilot study "Housing and the health of tamariki in Te Tai Tokerau" were delivered at the Population Health Congress in Auckland. It has revealed some of the houses the sick children were living in only had one set of curtains. From Te Manu Korihi, Christopher Gilbert reports.
