Pasifika Allied Health Aotearoa New Zealand (PAHANZ)

PAHANZ will have its inaugural symposium on 17 August 2019 in South Auckland and you are invited to register here.

In a network of like-minded professionals, Pasifika Allied Health Aotearoa New Zealand (PAHANZ) recognises the importance of being positive disruptors. To continuously improve our healthcare system and to provide specialised support for Pasifika patient needs, PAHANZ advocates for better Pasifika patient outcomes through holistic perspectives on health.

PAHANZ was formed as a connected voice between Le Va and DHBs to harness the expertise of Pasifika Allied Health academia and practitioners, to provide value through a Pasifika lens. With co-design and co-delivery, our partnership translates into culturally and evidence-based best practice. 

Using a platform for collaborACTION, PAHANZ translates mainstream issues to the Pasifika population. PAHANZ's aim is to ensure Pasifika Allied Health practitioners are available with the right skills, knowledge and support.

PAHANZ values strong relationships (nurturing the Va) between all people and by effectively walking in many worlds, success is possible through the ability to work as partners across sectors and cultures.
