Pasifika Peoples Perceptions of Health and Wellbeing in Aotearoa New Zealand
Le Va supports Pasifika families and communities to unleash their full potential, working with those delivering health and wellbeing services to develop flourishing Pasifika communities that enable the best possible health and wellbeing outcomes.
The current health reform being implemented in Aotearoa New Zealand presents significant opportunities to improve health outcomes for Pasifika people. However, with all major changes there are challenges which if not navigated with care, could have a negative impact on Pasifika communities. As a strong advocate for the health, wellbeing and aspirations of Pasifika families and communities, Le Va conducted a discovery project to better understand the current and future health and wellbeing needs of Pasifika people.
This document is the formal record of the discovery project, which connected with close to 900 Pasifika people across Aotearoa New Zealand. It will be shared with health, political, social and community leaders to increase understanding about the health and wellbeing needs, challenges, opportunities and aspirations of Pasifika people.
