Managing asthma is key to bringing down statistics in Aotearoa

Koinei te ra e kitea ai nga tatauranga kikino o Aotearoa, kei nga taumata teitei mate huanga o te Ao. Ka mutu, ko World Asthma Day 2016 tenei.

He rekoata a Ao kei ia Aotearoa e pupuri ana, engari ehara I te rekoata hei whakanui.

E ai ki a Alistair Harsant no Te Huango o Aotearoa, “It's a disease that's out there, most people don't realise how many people are asthmatics, New Zealand has one of the highest rates of asthmatics globally, which is very surprising for a small country.”

Hei tā Takuta Lily Fraser no te Turuki Hauora, “Kei Mangere au e mahi ana he tino matenga tenei ki waenganui i tenei hapori, ko wetahi take ko te ahuatanga o ngā whare i tenei takiwa, he makariri, he mākū koira etahi o ngā mea e patu nei i ngā tāngata kei a ratou tenei matenga.”

Kaare he taiapatanga o tenei mate ina ka toro ona weriweri ki te katoa.

“Kei ia au te mate huango, kei te kai au i tetahi rongoa ia ra, ia ata i pō, kāre e pā atu ngā ahuatanga o tera mauiui ki au, ka taea e au ngā mea katoa ahakoa kei i au tenei mauiuitanga,” hei tā Takuta Fraser.

Hei tā Harsant, “I am also one of those people, I am part Māori and I've been an asthmatic all my life as well, so it's something we're trying to get out not just across NZ as a whole but we really wanna target the Pacific and Māori cultures.”

Ko te maataapono e takia ana huri noa te ao mo tenei raa, 'Ka taea e koe te manaaki I to mate huango.'

“No reira kaua e tukuna tenei māuiuitanga kia whakataumaha, kia whakararu, kia whakaiti i to oranga arā whāia ngā āhuatanga o te rongoa, te whakamahana whare, te aukati kaipaipa era ahuatanga katoa, kia pakari ai tō tinana, kia pai ake to noho i tenei ao,” hei tā Takuta Fraser.
