Pacific Engagement

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
