Kia pukuru o vaevae, kia mokora o kaki,

E tiro o mata ki o Rongo, Te ngai e tapu ei!"

 

KIA ORANA FROM THE PRESIDENT

 Kia Orana and welcome to the first issue of the CIHNA newsletter for 2007. It’s been a busy period for CIHNA since June last year, as we continue with the second phase of the Cook Islands Health and Disability Workforce Development Project. Funded by the Ministry of Health, the project is aimed at strengthening and increasing the Cook Islands health and disability workforce in NZ. Since the project commenced in 2005, CIHNA has made numerous achievements, including setting-up office at the Cook Islands Community Centre in Mangere, Auckland to name a few! As we gaze ahead, we look forward to yet another exciting and busy year – we are especially pleased to announce Turama 2020 – Vision 2020, the Cook Islands Health and Disability Conference, in June this year. This promises to be an exciting event of celebration and inspiration of leadership and achievement - so watch this space! Finally, I would like to thank the team for their hard work and everyone who has supported CIHNA. Now sit back and relax - I hope you enjoy the newsletter and look forward to seeing you at the conference!

 Kia Manuia,

 

Dr. Francis Agnew

President

CIHNA is pleased to bring you Turama 2020 – Vision 2020, the Cook Islands Health and Disability Conference, 2007. The conference is one of three workforce development initiatives aimed at increasing and strengthening the Cook Islands health and disability workforce. “It’s a chance for Cook Islands peoples to come together and celebrate the successes of our leaders, and with that we hope to see positive changes in peoples’ attitudes and behavior” says project manager Tai Richard. The objectives of the conference include the following:

  •  an opportunity for the gathering of the Cook Islands health and disability workforce to share their experiences and network with others;

  • the promotion of Cook Islands research and models of care;

  • the promotion of Cook Islands culture and health;

  • raising awareness regarding CIHNA;

  • promoting the health and the disability sector as exciting and viable opportunities for employment; and

  •  celebrating and being inspired by the achievements and successes of Cook Islands leaders in the sector and the community.
