On a hopeful sunny Wellington morning last week, the Ministry of Disabled People was launched, The Spinoff reports. Its te reo name, Whaikaha, means “enabling”. Whaikaha will centralise disability supports and be a single point of contact for disabled people. The prime minister described the new ministry as part of the transformation of a “broken and fragmented” health and disability system, but noted there was still “much to be done”.
