Our Pacific Health Providers
The Pacific Provider Development Fund (PPDF) was established by the Ministry of Health in 1998 in order to allow Pacific people to access healthcare where their language is spoken, their culture understood and where Pacific models of care were delivered - Alliance Health Plus is a champion for the PPDF.
We have a network of specialist health providers that extend throughout the greater Auckland region. With a strong relationship between local practices and Integrated Services, our providers are able to deliver health initiatives direct to communities.The providers create opportunities to raise awareness, provide education and necessary resources on health issues that are affecting the local communities that they operate in.
Our main Pacific providers:

The organisation was established by a group of health professionals who possessed experience in service delivery, policy development and clinical skills in the primary care area.
