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.

What the Pacific Health Action Plan aims to achieve

The Pacific Health Action Plan will improve health outcomes for Pacific communities by:

  1. improving responsiveness to Pacific communities
  2. contributing to best practice services for Pacific peoples and their families
  3. working more collaboratively with other Government agencies, the wider health system and Pacific communities.

Pacific Community and Pacific Health Sector Talanoa

Community and sector talanoa have now ended. The thirteen talanoa were held across New Zealand over August and September 2019.
