Faiva Ora 2014–2016 sets out priority outcomes and actions that will contribute to achieving its vision – Pasifika disabled people and their families can live in their home and take part in the community in the same way other New Zealanders do.
Faiva Ora will deliver on 3 priority areas:
- ensuring Pasifika people are aware of, understand and know how to access disability services
- improving the cultural responsiveness of disability support services used by Pasifika people
- ensuring family members and carers of Pasifika disabled people are supported to provide effective care.
The Ministry of Health contracted Le Va to implement Faiva Ora 2014–2016. The Ministry is also working with Pasifika disabled people, disability support services providers and other stakeholders to implement other actions of the plan.
