Haere mai ki Te Pūnaha Matatini
Toki nui te toki!
Toki roa te toki!
Toki tā wahie.
Ka whanatu au
Ka hahau i te takapū o Rangi e tū nei
Ka hinga, ka mate …
Ki a Papatūānuku e takoto nei –
Tihei mauri ora!

The 2020 Prime Minister’s Science Prize has been awarded to Te Pūnaha Matatini for our contribution to Aotearoa New Zealand’s Covid-19 response.
Vaccination and testing of the border workforce for COVID-19 and risk of community outbreaks: a modelling study
We use a stochastic model of COVID-19 transmission and testing to investigate the effect that vaccination of border workers has on the risk of an outbreak in an unvaccinated community.
We aim to estimate inequities in infection fatality rates (IFR) in New Zealand by ethnicity.
We describe the development of a stochastic mathematical model for the transmission and control of Covid-19 in New Zealand.
Masters scholarships aim to develop an interdisciplinary response, covering science, science communication, design and community engagement.
Te Pūnaha Matatini researchers model the effects of various different border policies and testing regimes for frontline border workers on COVID-19 reincursion risk.
