Pasifika & Maori Health Women & Babies Project

A project that PWA wash involved with since February 2015, the Pasifika & Maori Health Women & Babies project brought together women across Brisbane for Talanoa on all things relating to pregnancy, child birth health care and the experiences of several women in Queensland.  The aim of this project was to identify ways to assist Pasifika & Maori women in the Queensland Health system.

PWA committee members – Wynn Te Kani & Maureen Mopio-Jane sit on the steering committee for this project along with representatives from Metro South, Queensland Health. It is a project strongly supported by PWA and The Good Start Program – researching and creating services for our Pasifika & Maori expecting mothers to engage in.

The Pasifika & Maori Health Women & Newborn Forum was held on 18th April, 2016 at the Hope Centre, Logan.
