Plunket is the biggest Well Child provider in Aotearoa. This service aims to reach and support the many communities that make up Pacific Peoples.
We do this by providing a quality health service, and by working closely with those who touch the lives of Pacific children and their families.
There are thousands of people across Aotearoa working to deliver this on Plunket’s behalf. But what does this mean for you?
Plunket provides Well Child services to more than 90% of all new babies in New Zealand.
Of those families, around 11% identify as Pacific.
