Developing the Pacific health workforce

Developing the Pacific health workforce

Students from La Salle College distribute Le Va giveaways at the 2010 Pasifika festival in Auckland. Le Va, the national Pacific health workforce development programme, is part of Te Pou (the National Centre of Mental Health Research, Information and Workforce Development). The organisation takes a holistic approach to health, believing it encompasses mental, physical, social and spiritual wellbeing.
