Press Release | Vaka Tautua
Associate Minister of Health Hon Tariana Turia last week facilitated the dual launch of Tangata o le Moana – the Auckland Regional Provider Network and the refreshed Ala Mo’ui: Pathways to Pacific Health and Wellbeing 2014-2018.
Ala Mo’ui 2014-2018 is the national plan for improving health outcomes for Pacific peoples and is driven by the shared vision of achieving health equity for our Pacific communities throughout New Zealand.
Underpinning the newly established network and ‘Ala Mo’ui plan is the shared responsibility of recognising the health goals of the Pacific community and the importance of building relationships and networking in order to achieve them.
Chief Executive, Carmel Sepuloni says, “Vaka Tautua is excited about this new collaboration and strongly believes in the importance of working together to achieve results for Pacific People.
‘It is only appropriate that like minded ‘by pacific for pacific’ organisations work in collaboration to ensure that all of our Vaka are moving together as a coordinated fleet with the clear objective of responding to the health needs of our Pasifika communities and families’.
“Vaka Tautua is in the unique position of offering services in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch and so we look forward to being actively involved in all regional networks.” Says Sepuloni.
