This report focuses on the underlying determinants of health for Pacific children and young people in New Zealand and aims to: 1. Provide a snapshot of progress for Pacific children in many of the areas covered by the House of Representatives’ Health Committee inquiry (2012) including: child poverty and living standards, housing, early childhood education, oral health, tobacco use, alcohol related harm, and children’s exposure to family violence. 2. Assist those working in the health sector to consider the roles other agencies play in influencing Pacific child and youth health outcomes in each of these areas. 3. Assist those working locally to utilise all of the available evidence when developing programmes and interventions to address child and youth health need.
