Capital & Coast District Health Board (CCDHB) is committed to working with local agencies and our communities to improve health outcomes and reduce inequalities experienced by Pacific peoples.
The 2013 Census reported that Pacific people make up 8% (22,600) of the overall population of CCDHB. Over half of our Pacific population live in Porirua, and 27% of Pacific people are under 15 years old.
CCDHB’s Pacific Directorate team is focused on improving, promoting and protecting the health of Pacific people. The team monitors the performance of Pacific providers and PHOs, supports the work of all departments in the DHB and is responsible for implementing the Ministry of Health’s strategies for improving the health of Pacific people, as set out in the following documents:
Ministry of Health Ala Mo‘ui: Pathways to Pacific Health and Wellbeing 2014–2018
Ministry of Health Faiva Ora National Pasifika Disability Plan 2016-2021
Toe timata le upega Pacific Action Plan 2017–2020
This outlines our performance intentions for the next three years, focusing on local initiatives and services that aim to improve the health of our population.
