About

At the Pacific Islander Health Board of WA, we see the value in everyone. We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and since our beginnings when our board members came together volunteering their time, we’ve been driven by the same ideas that we initially founded our Organization upon:

Support, Empowerment, and Progress.
