Retaining Pacific staff
More Pacific people are being sought to join the Auckland District Health Board’s workforce in a bid to improve Pacific health.
The strategy is part of a new plan called Our Health in Our Hands launched by Auckland and Waitemata district health boards.
The plan aims to increase the number of Pacific people working for health boards and ensure these staff members are retained.
It also aims to develop a Pacific Wellness at Work programme and grow health literacy through communitybased programmes.
