This book tells the inspirational story of a small group of Pacific medical professionals who joined forces in 1996 to create a united voice for pacific health in new zealand. Together, they became the Pasifika Medical Association and played a major role in shaping the development of the Pacific health sector and its workforce. This book features insightful and entertaining first-hand accounts of those involved and traces the organisation's journey from a group of volunteers operating out of a car boot into a $40 million company engaged with 32 Pacific organisations and 30,000 people from North Cape to Bluff. This is one of the great, untold Kiwi success stories
