New Zealand's national Pasifika cultural competency training programme

If health services connected culture and care for Pasifika people, we would see better access rates, earlier intervention from services, a reduction in 'did not attend' rates, more satisfaction with the quality of services and, ultimately, better health outcomes.

Engaging Pasifika is an evidence-informed programme that equips the workplace to connect culture and care. Participants learn the foundational attitudes, knowledge and skills to safely engage with, and effectively deliver quality services for Pasifika people and their families. 

Enabling culturally intelligent disability support systems and services

Cultural competency and having a culturally intelligent workforce is not just about individuals. It includes the organisations, systems and structures that we work in. Le Va has produced organisational guidelines for disability support services so that whole organisations and systems can aim to increase and provide the best possible care and support for Pasifika families.
