Title: Pokie gambling and Māori women: Friend or foe?
Issue: 12
Author: Laurie Morrison
Abstract: Gambling behaviours and health promotion strategies to address problem gambling are becoming increasingly important in Aotearoa-New Zealand, as in other parts of the world. Successful health promotion strategies are underpinned by contextual knowledge around the issue in question. This paper discusses some of the contextual factors that health promoters will need to consider when addressing strategies aimed at Māori women affected by problem gambling. The paper is a work in progress contributing to a doctoral thesis to explore Māori women’s perceptions of new forms of gambling and the health implications on whanau (extended family) in Rotorua and Auckland.

Title: A public health approach for Asian people with problem gambling in foreign countries
Issue: 12
Authors: Samson Tse, John Wong, & Hyeeun Kim
Abstract: There has been a rapid increase in Asian immigration to English-speaking countries such as New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and the United States.
Anecdotal accounts and research suggest high levels of participation in gambling by people from Asian countries. Asian problem gambling is seen as being a social rather than an individual problem compounded by difficulties with post-migration adjustment. Contemporary public health perspectives are not limited to the biological and behavioural dimensions, but can also address socioeconomic determinants such as income, employment, poverty, and access to social and healthcare services related to gambling and health. This paper discusses how a public health viewpoint can lead to effective strategies against problem gambling. The five principles proposed in this paper are: (1) acknowledging similarities and differences within Asian populations, (2) ensuring that strategies are evidence- based, (3) treating Asian problem gambling in an acculturation framework, (4) addressing the issue of shame associated with problem gambling among Asian people, and (5) targeting at-risk sub-groups.
