Pacific Engagement Platform
Our vision is to increase engagement between Pacific communities and the Aotearoa NZ healthtech sector.
To achieve this we will hold initiatives to:
increase awareness among Pacific communities about the potential benefits of being involved in the healthtech sector
support cultural responsiveness of those in the healthtech sector to the needs of Pacific communities
facilitate opportunities to increase awareness of Pacific peoples’ health and wellbeing priorities, and to work in partnership on co-designed healthtech solutions that are underpinned by Pacific values, languages, and culture
