Homeless Wahine Maori and survival sex: An emerging link?

Abstract:

 Part of Te Matapihi's role in housing is to champion the rights of our pani me te rawakore, to identify gaps in policy development and service provision, and to amplify the voices and experiences of individuals and organisations experiencing or responding to housing issues. The absence of good quality data is a persistent issue, hindering policies from being appropriately targeted to the specific needs of minority groups, such as older women, domestic and sexual violence survivors, youth exiting care and released prisoners. Despite making up a disproportionate percentage of those experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity, Maori women are one such underserviced group.
