The 2016 PMAANZ conference is all about celebrating diversity. New Zealand has one of the most diverse populations in the OECD, with over 200 ethnicities represented in our schools, workplaces and communities. Diversity enriches our society culturally, spiritually, socially, economically as well as gastronomically and is one of the things that makes New Zealand such a great place to live! However, census data based on ethnicity shows wide disparities in the wellbeing of New Zealanders. The PMAANZ Conference hopes to enrich delegates with knowledge and experience, as well as empower leaders in health to help bridge the diversity health gap.
