Centre for Asian and Ethnic Minority Health Research

lily

The Centre for Asian and Ethnic Minority Health Research (CAHRE), formed on 19 May 2004, is a research unit at the University of Auckland based at the School of Population Health (SoPH). The Centre has a strong focus on the current health issues of Asian and other Ethnic Minority communities in New Zealand, and seeks to develop strategic ways to improve and visualise the health status of these fast growing population groups. It also values partnerships with other research academics to further its goals.  

CAHRE’s research programme concentrates on four aspects of Asian and other Ethnic Minority health:

  1. Mental health issues
  2. Health concerns such as obesity and diabetes
  3. Service accessibility issues
  4. Settlement and integration

The Centre’s recent research projects include: health transitions of Asian immigrants, suicide in Asian communities, intergenerational care in transnational families and health and wellbeing of older migrants. To find out more about our research, please visit our projects page.
