Māori claimants have put a pitch for 15 percent of the health budget.

The Waitangi Tribunal is sitting in Wellington this week to hear closing submissions on the Māori health outcomes claim.

Claimant Lady Tureiti Moxon says the benefits of health reforms did not flow to Māori providers, which are funded at lower rates than their mainstream counterparts.

More equitable funding, rather than the current 2 percent or so, for all Māori to take control of their own destiny.

"We have some of that infrastructure. We will need time to grow it and to make it into what you see is normal for Pākehā providers in terms of GP clinics, in terms of the number of hospitals around the country. Why can't we do the same thing for our own people in our own way," Lady Tureiti Moxon says.
