Start: End:
Location: Zoom - Meeting ID: 889-7062-0656

A webinar presented by Debbie Sorensen, Chief Executive of Pasifika Medical Association, and Pasifika Futures.

The impact of COVID-19 within the Pacific region could be devastating if regional community partners are not adequately supported, and the public-health messaging is not coordinated or informed.

The Pasifika Medical Association is a network of Pacific health professionals, working collaboratively to strengthen Pacific health workforce capacity and meet the health needs of Pacific people across the region.
This webinar is an opportunity to hear from them about what they identify as the critical issues facing the Pacific region as they respond to the COVID crisis, and the things NGOs in New Zealand need to consider to best support their Pacific partners.

What does the pandemic mean for the localisations of public-health programming, and the Pacific Reset agenda?
