For the health and wellbeing of existing and potential participants we have decided to cancel until further notice our Certificate of Achievement course offered by Manukau Institute of Technology and HPF (CoA). We can manage this well, as we have done in past situations.
We arrived at this decision after much consultation and feedback from our members and partners, and with the full support of the HPF Board, following our assessment of the increasing impact of the Covid-19 on many spheres of life in the country, a reflection to a lesser degree, of the same but more serious challenge that other countries are facing.
Meanwhile, HPF works to support the public health structure response to Covid-19. For example, HPF’s Dr Viliami Puloka is supporting the public health team led by Prof Michael Baker at Otago University, and he has been on several Pacific public radio programmes to disseminate accurate and timely information to the Pacific communities. He is also on a call list of Pacific medical and public health team to respond when needed.
HPF’s Executive Director Sione Tu’itahi is also involved in that area of work from a community leadership angle, in consultation with the Ministry of Pacific Peoples.
