We are proud of the innovative and proactive role ESR has played in managing the COVID-19 pandemic. ESR continued staying ahead of the game with our molecular scientists, epidemiologists and analysts providing real-time health intelligence.

They continue expanding genome sequencing and wastewater testing, applying the multidisciplinary analysis needed to distil the public health intelligencethat underpins New Zealand’s success in managing the spread of COVID-19.

We continued our journey of embedding our strategy He Pūtaiao, He Tāngata to deliver science solutions that meet the needs and aspirations of Māori communities.

We appointed the General Manager Māori Impact to the Senior Leadership Team and strengthened our resourcing and focus on this important mahi. Through this approach, we are identifying and creating our strongest opportunities to deliver systemic change for and with Māori.

Our flagship He Wai Māpuna and Te Hāpai Ō strategic programmes are strengthening and building enduring relationships to grow genuine collaboration and partnership with Māori and impact for communities.
