Voices from the community leaders

Dr. Robert Woonton calls on the Cook Islands community

PLEASE SHARE COOK ISLANDS COVID-19 MESSAGE From Dr. Robert Woonton to our Cook Islands people and communities. “Unprecedented times requires an unprecedented response.” Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Jacinda Ardern This is no time for complacency is the strong message from the Pacific Leadership Forum with deep concern for the Pacific communities across New Zealand that are not fully engaged and equipped with the understanding of the risks and the prevention of the coronavirus (Covid-19). It is a great risk not only to the Pacific communities, but also to the wider New Zealand population and our neighbouring islands. The Pacific Leadership Forum see our Pacific communities as the most highly exposed segment of the New Zealand population due to the communal way we do life and community. But also with many having multiple comorbidity health conditions which will put unnecessary pressure on the health system. The Pacific Leadership Forum stands ready to work with the Government and its agencies to ensure meaningful, efficient and effective engagement with the Pacific communities to be more informed, more equipped and empowered to act responsibility to protect their families and help prevent the risks and spread of the coronavirus for all New Zealanders by leading a Pacific Coronavirus Readiness Campaign ensuring we reach the Pacific population that are at risk and not being captured by the traditional communications modes of engagement currently being actioned for coronavirus by the Ministry of Health, DHBs, Public Health and Pacific health providers. The seriousness of the coronavirus health issue to New Zealand and the vulnerability of our Pacific communities means we must act now. Dr. Robert Woonton is a governance member of the Pacific Leadership Forum (PLF), an extensive group of Pacific senior leaders particularly, with the most significant mandate of Pacific churches and communities across Pacific ethnic groups as well as other significant community groups (Samoa, Tonga, Cook Island, Niue, Tokelau, Tuvalu, Fiji, Kiribati). The PLF is not a political lobby group. It is a Pacific community led initiative that is coordinated to gather and collaborate for high level fono to share and communicate significant issues that are affecting Pacific communities.
