A prominent Niuean New Zealander is seeking a senior post at the World Health Organisation.

Dr Colin Tukuitonga, a medical doctor who has previously worked at the WHO, New Zealand's Ministry of Health, headed the Ministry of Pacific Islands Affairs, and has been the director general of the Pacific Community for nearly the past five years, is now vying to become the regional director of the WHO for the Western Pacific.
