🌺 Malo aupito to Dr Saia Mau Piukala, World Health Organisation (WHO) Regional Director for the Western Pacific! 🌺

Our chief executive, Denise Kingi-Uluave, was privileged to attend Dr Piukalas seminar today, alongside our board co-chair Josiah Tualamalii and Ben Tameifuna, senior manager public health and disability. 

Hosted by Te Poutoko Ora A Kiwa at the University of Auckland, this was a wonderful opportunity to gain valuable insights into Dr Piukalas vision and priorities for the future of health in the Western Pacific region. 

It was also a chance to celebrate Dr Piukalas appointment as WHOs first Regional Director from the Pacific, a proud achievement for him and for the Pacific people he represents. As the Tongan proverb says, Sii pe kae hā - we are small, but when we come together, we are strong. 💪🏾
