Pan Pasifika fono – Auckland 2020
The Pan Pasifika Fono was held on 4th and 5th November 2020 at the Ellerslie Event Centre in Auckland. The Fono had a common goal of working towards achieving equity for the health and wellbeing of Pacific people, with a particular focus on food, nutrition and tobacco control.
This was a unique opportunity to bring like-minded Pacific people together in a forum to network, be innovative, mobilise, energise, empower, inspire and learn something new.
The fono partners – Pacific Heartbeat | Heart Foundation, Te Hiringa Hauora | Health Promotion Agency and Tala Pasifika –wish to sincerely thank you for attending.
