United for the cause

Alliance Health Plus is delighted to announce that we are joining forces with The Cause Collective to create more effective, integrated, health and wellbeing outcomes for Pacific populations and South Auckland communities.

Social change agency The Cause Collective (TCC) and Primary Health Organisation (PHO) Alliance Health Plus (AH+) will launch under one banner on 1 December 2022.

As separate organisations, TCC and AH+ now provide primary health care and wellbeing services for more than 120,000 people in the Auckland region.

“We are pleased to announce that we are combining to be one team: one integrated, organisational family. This will make us more effective in smart, circuit-breaker, action-oriented anticipation of Health New Zealand’s changes. Our aim is a stronger, sharper focus on health transformation for our Pasifika, Māori and vulnerable communities in South Auckland,” said Mr Uluomatootua (Ulu) Aiono, Chairman of TCC and AH+.

The integrated group will operate under the TCC banner. With about 100 staff, the new organisation will be based in the TCC offices in Manukau.

“Our integration and combined strengths will create a more effective range of skills and resources. Our AH+ clinician leaders’ expertise in primary and community care, combined with TCC’s strengths in critical thinking and systems will focus on Pasifika, Māori and vulnerable people in our South Auckland communities. We also understand the necessity for flexibility and anticipation of pan-locality access and working relationships.
