New Zealand's first Pacific Pharmacists' Association has launched with support from PHARMAC, the New Zealand government's drug-funding agency; the South Pacific is a key focus for a new fellowship established to help convey previously untold histories from New Zealand and the region; a South Auckland teacher is using the stories of Pacific heroes to help lift learning and achievement rates for Pacific kids in New Zealand; the conversation surrounding the possible independence of Chuuk from the Federated States of Micronesia has heated up, with the local US Ambassador and a former president warning of dire consequences if it happens; Helen Clark is urging political parties in Solomon Islands to support women planning to contest both the national and provincial elections next year; an art exhibition in Auckland is tackling the big issues facing Pacific communities, including colonisation, stigmatisation and the modern identity; business operators on Norfolk Island say the territory is still reeling from the imposition of the Australian national wage award system two months ago.
