The Cause 

The Association has been championing excellence in healthcare and practice throughout New Zealand and the region since 1996.  To acknowledge this service and commitment, members of the association established the Pasifika Medical Association Education Fund, which provides study grants and support to Pacific secondary and tertiary students focused on a career in health and  Pacific Doctors and Nurses to undertake short courses and study tours.

Did you know that only 1.8% of the New Zealand Medical workforce are of Pacific descent?  This is why the association must raise more funds each year so it can support the current Pacific health workforce to complete their training and encourage future Pacific students to take up health as a career.  It is crucial that together, we work towards increasing the number of well-trained Pacific health professionals to serve the growing Pacific population.

We would not be able to provide these much-appreciated opportunities without your special support of our annual Charity Ball & Auction. Your continuous endorsement of our work and attendance at our Charity Ball will ensure we can strengthen the Pasifika health workforce capacity and capability to meet the health needs of our Pacific communities and families.
