Working for Pacific Communities: Pacific Public Health

Auckland Regional Public Health Service (ARPHS) provides public health services to the population of the Auckland region, which includes a rich diversity of communities. However, we recognise the special place that Pacific communities have and the unique challenges they face. We are committed to help reduce inequalities for Pacific peoples, working towards better health and wellbeing.

We deliver services that have an impact on Pacific communities such as communicable disease control, food safety, BCG vaccinations, education around environmental hazards, drinking water, health promotion programmes, healthier housing and many more.

ARPHS has developed a range of resources and documents aimed at Pacific people, families and communities. These can be obtained by clicking the Request Resources link below.

Working together with Pacific people : Vaka Ola

Vaka Ola is a supportive group for Pacific staff within ARPHS.  It promotes Pacific values and nurtures the knowledge, skills, capabilities and talents of its members.

Vaka Ola literally means canoe of life. For ARPHS’ staff, it represents the journey of Pacific people to New Zealand, the journey of public health and wellbeing and the journey of developing Pacific staff.
