Advancement of Religion
 

Health Star Pacific Trust's objectives support the "advancement of religion" in the following areas:
 

·         Celebrating religious services in public

·         Supporting particular church group activities for the benefit of community 
 


HEALTH STAR PACIFIC TRUST is a non government organisation established by the Founding Trustees under the Charitable Trusts Act 1957 for the sole purpose of performing charitable work.

“I am not an individual; I am an integral part of the cosmos. I share divinity with my ancestors, the land, the seas and the skies. I am not an individual, because I share my tofi (an inheritance) with my family, my village and my nation. I belong to my family and my family belongs to me. I belong to my village and my village belongs to me. I belong to my nation and my nation belongs to me. This is the essence of my belonging.”

Tui Atua Tupua Tamasese Ta’isi Efi, Head of State of the Independent State of Samoa

The HSPT ‘Community Vision’ program for Pacific Church Women’s Fellowship groups is solely funded by HSPT to support and empower Women, their families and their communities to achieve a healthy lifestyle through self care & self responsibility. The program has been very successful in helping Pacific Church Women’s Fellowship groups access health information and services including Breast Screening and Pregnancy Support services.

HSPT in 2011 extended its ‘Community Vision’ program with the establishment of the Pacific Church Women’s Fellowship groups with 30 groups invited to participate. The HSPT ‘Community Vision’ program involves focus groups, one for Pacific Early Childhood Education centres (ECECs) and now one for Pacific Church Women’s Fellowship groups to participate in four workshops organised by HSPT throughout the year to promote awareness of Women’s Health.

Pacific Churches – HSPT Community Partnership 2008
 
In 2008, HSPT, AuckPac PHO, TaPasefika PHO, Tongan Health Society PHO, West Fono, Tamaki Healthcare PHO were joined by Penina Health Trust, Pacific Islands Heartbeat and The Quit Group in the 2 events. A highlight of the Pacific event was the visit by PM Helen Clarke at the last event where the ‘Community Partnership’ after 6 years has achieved its purpose to engage the Pacific communities in a meaningful way in promoting health services.
Pacific Churches – HSPT Community Partnership 2007

The success of the ‘Community Partnership’ program is further evident in CMDHB adopting a similar approach with its Lotu Moui program. With the shift to Ellerslie, participation has now doubled to over 400 Pacific churches and community groups from around Auckland now participating in the 2 events each year. Collaboration with Pacific providers have now extended to include Maori with Tamaki Healthcare PHO participating and co-sponsoring the events.
Pacific Churches – HSPT Community Partnership 2006
 

A big part of the success of the ‘Community Partnership’ program is the engagement of the Pacific community in their own language by providers. The event is organised in 5 stations; Samoa, Cook Islands, Tonga, a mix group for Niue, Fiji, Tuvalu, Tokelau and English speaking, and a health expo area. The 2 events in 2006 were co-sponsored by HSPT, AuckPac PHO, TaPasefika PHO, Tongan Health Society PHO, West Fono Healthcare and Tamaki Healthcare PHO.
Pacific Churches – HSPT Community Partnership 2005

The success of the innovative thinking by HSPT in promoting and building relationships with Pacific communities and instigating collaboration between the main Pacific health providers in Auckland was evident in the successful development and delivery of the Pacific Strategy for the national MenZ B program. The 2 events in 2005 were co-sponsored by HSPT, AuckPac PHO, TaPasefika PHO with Pasifika Healthcare (West Fono) also participating.
Pacific Churches – HSPT Community Partnership 2004

HSPT identified the need for collaboration to improve access to existing health services with AuckPac PHO (inc. Mt. Wellington Accident & Family Healthcare) the first to participate. The huge interest from churches and groups resulted in the event being moved to Ellerslie Convention Centre, also providing the opportunity for TaPasefika PHO (inc. Bader Drive Healthcare & South Seas Healthcare) and Pacific PHO MenZ B with Tongan Health Society the opportunity to participate.
Pacific Churches – HSPT Community Partnership 2003

The HSPT ‘Community Partnership’ program came about as a result of emerging challenges in engaging Pacific community groups. HSPT identified the need to build and formalise long-term working relationships with Pacific communities and so invested in organising and running of 2 health expos at the Lakeside Convention Centre, Mangere. Reps from over 200 Pacific churches and Pacific community groups participated in the one day events.
