The He Rourou Whai Painga (HRWP) study has reached another significant milestone: the part of the study where food is provided to participants has been completed.

With the support of 30 food and beverage partners, HRWP provided approximately 75% of each family’s food to 200 participants and their whānau for 12 weeks.

Some families have now finished the entire 12-month study. The remaining families will continue to be monitored and will finish between now and May 2024.

The next steps include processing the blood samples, analysing the data and collating the results. The first set of results will be available in 2024.
