6:36 pm on 10 April 2020

A new website dedicated to providing information on Covid-19 for Pacific communities across New Zealand has launched this week.

The website, preparepacific.nz, is supported by District Health Boards in Northland and Auckland as well as the Ministry of Health and The Cause Collective, which is a Pacific social change agency.

It aims to provide up-to-date, relevant information that supports the fight against Coronavirus from Pacific perspectives.

Counties Manukau Chief Executive Fepulea'i Margie Apa said Pacific peoples are faced with many mixed messages about Covid-19, and the website would assist them in finding what they need to know in one place.

Some of the features include health messages from Pacific doctors, financial support information and a list of essential services and Pacific providers.

The website is to provide the latest health information from the Ministry of Health and various District Health Boards.
