The primary role of Pacific health research is to generate knowledge and understanding of Pacific peoples that will improve their health outcomes.
Pacific health research requires the active involvement of Pacific peoples (as researchers, advisors and stakeholders), and not just as subjects of research. Pacific health research helps to build the capacity and capability of Pacific peoples in research, and contributes to the Pacific knowledge base.
Pacific health research design, methods and approaches aim to be responsive to changing Pacific contexts, underpinned by Pacific cultural values and beliefs, and conducted in accordance with Pacific ethical standards, values and aspirations.
