 The aspirations of the network are:

  • a platform to discuss and implement a longer term strategy for Auckland to improve the health and wellbeing of Pacific families

  • Pacific-led services are able to access a more equitable share of health expenditure based on the evidence of better health outcomes using Pacific models of care.
