Here's how we work for you
Caring is our culture
The Fono works collaboratively and in partnership with our families, communities, government, service providers and stakeholders ensuring our services remain culturally appropriate and safe.
We are built on a culture of caring - both in the improvements we want to see in the lives of our people, but also in our approach on the ground to ensure that everyone we work with feels respected and supported. This culture of caring is combined with a drive to improve wellbeing and equity for Pasifika, delivered with a cultural awareness of the differences of our communities from the general population and the required approach to support them to better meet their needs.
The Fono Care
Whole person approach
Fono Care treats the whole person, rather than just addressing individual symptoms or conditions. It considers the individuals's physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs and how they all interconnect.
Integration of care
Fono Care promotes the integration of our different services to provide coordinated, comprehensive care. It recognises the importance of addressing social, environmental, and economic factors that can impact an individual's health.
We acknowledge the role of the family in the context of delivering care. Therefore, we don't just treat an individual but the whole family.
Four decades ago the pioneers of The Fono had a vision. To establish a Pasifika for Pasifika health and social services hub for our families and communities. We are realising that vision today.
