About the Pacific Health Hub

Pacific Health Hub is an online hub supporting more Pacific people into a career in health. It is an initiative led by the three Auckland District Health Boards.


Pacific Workforce Initiatives aim to redress the imbalance between the Pacific population living in Auckland and the number of Pacific people working in the health sector. The Pacific Health Hub underpins this programme providing easily accessible information online.

The Auckland District Health Board, Waitemata District Health Board and Counties Manukau Health collaborate on various programmes and initiatives to achieve more Pacific people working in health jobs.
