Pacific Health Action Plan

Information and updates about the Pacific Health Action Plan.

Plan set to enhance equity

A new Pacific Health Action Plan is being developed as the successor to ’Ala Mo’ui: Pathways to Pacific Health and Wellbeing.

The Pacific Health Action Plan will build on ’Ala Mo’ui’s work to achieve equitable health outcomes for Pacific peoples in Aotearoa New Zealand, while being more responsive to the needs of Pacific fanau and communities.

Tell us how we can improve Pacific health

At its heart, the new Pacific Health Action Plan is about ensuring Pacific health and wellbeing services are meeting the needs of all Pacific peoples in Aotearoa New Zealand. We can only make real gains if the new Action Plan is developed in partnership with Pacific communities. To achieve this, community and sector talanoa facilitated by the Ministry’s Pacific Health team are being held around Aotearoa New Zealand.
