A New Zealand MP, Luamanuvao Winnie Laban, has launched Pacific health research guidelines at a conference in Auckland.

Luamanuvao, who is of Samoan descent, says the guidelines are targetted at people who are reseachers or who woud like to be researchers.

"It's very important to develop cultural models of research so the pacific community basically come together to develop some guidelines on how best you can do research within each of the Pacific communities and also across the range of the Pacific."
