PASIFIKA MEDICAL ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE 2022


Ni sa bula vinaka, Kia orana, Mālō e lelei, Talofa lava, Faka alofa lahi atu, Fakatālofa atu, Mālo ni

Registrations are now open for Pasifika Medical Association Conference 2022. Join us as we celebrate 26 years of successful navigation this year and ‘Reconnect, Reflect, Reframe, Re-energise’ on the 4th to 6th September 2022 at Te Papa Museum in Wellington. 

Our key themes are:

  • RECONNECT: Mental health innovation and integration 
  • REFLECT: Humanitarian assistance and recovery 
  • REFRAME: What’s new in Climate Change 
  • RE-ENERGISE: Moving Pacific horizons towards equity 

The Annual PMA Conference remains the largest meeting of Pacific health workers and professionals in our region. We are excited to announce that we will be hosting for the first time our ‘Students and Trainees Leadership Forum’ on the 4th September as the prelude to the Conference.

The Conference enables us to reach beyond our geographical boundaries, move out from our everyday concerns and share our collective innovations, learnings, and best practices. The Conference also supports us to develop solutions to the challenges that face all our countries and communities. The Conference has a history of providing an information-rich environment for attendees to interact, share and improve knowledge and aspirations in a friendly and supportive environment and this year will be no different.
