The Te Mana Ola engagement report is a supplement to Te Mana Ola: The Pacific Health Strategy (Te Mana Ola) and provides a detailed summary of insights shared with the Ministry of Health throughout the Te Mana Ola engagement process. The purpose of this document is to create a feedback loop to ensure we report publicly what we heard from Pacific peoples.
The report highlights the diverse experiences of Pacific peoples and aims to amplify the voices of under-represented groups, including tagata sa’ilimalo (Pacific disabled people, their families, and carers), youth, women, rural communities, Pasifika Rainbow+/MVPFAFF+, and those with lived experience of a mental health condition.
The Ministry of Health would like to sincerely thank each person, group, and organisation that participated in the talanoa and engagement process. Thank you for sharing your stories. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.
