Around 280,000 New Zealanders have diabetes, with the disease almost three times more common in Māori than non-Māori. And mortality rates for the disease are nine times higher for Māori aged 43-64 years than non-Māori.
Health experts say early screening is essential, but the problem is that just 35 percent of Māori opt-in for these checkups.
But a New Zealand tech company is hoping to help curb the problem as well as other diseases using its artificial intelligence platform THEIA.
