Asian Caucus

Welcome to the Asian caucus home page.

The Asian caucus meets in Auckland and by Zoom three or four times a year to share research findings, health initiatives focused on Asian public health in Aotearoa, and updates from the PHA director, president and council.

2018 highlights

Our highlights last year were increased attendance at meetings and the election of caucus member Maraim Parwaiz, a public health medicine registrar at CMDHB, to the PHANZ Council. The caucus agreed to complement the work of The Asian Network Inc (TANI) and eCALD services by focusing particularly on population health services, advocacy and research including epidemiology. We regularly shared events of interest to our mailing list.

Plans for 2019

Our plans for this year include holding a second Asian caucus seminar (in-person and Zoom facilitated) about one of a range of topics suggested by caucus meetings in 2018; contributing to at least one PHA submission about an issue that especially affects Asian New Zealanders; and adding news from public health research and initiatives about Asian populations from overseas to our meetings.
