Alliance Health + Community Services
Community Health Service
We believe that healthcare starts with our communities. Patients are what make up our communities in Auckland and, as such, a targeted focus on how their healthcare can be shaped is a necessary component of what we do daily.
We have a communities team that actively goes into church congregations and community groups to help facilitate healthcare awareness and education initiatives. These initiatives include: Healthy Action Village Zone, Mama's House and Rheumatic Fever Prevention & Awareness Programme. These initiatives are run throughout the Auckland region.
We also maintain a strong Pacific Health Provider network that works with general practices to provide accessible healthcare to the Pacific populations in Counties Manukau. These core focus providers include:
- Langimale Health Centres (Onehunga, Panmure & Kelston)
- Baderdrive Doctors (Mangere & Manurewa)
- South Seas Healthcare (Otara)
A further extension of our community influence is with our sister organisation Alliance Communities Initiatives Trust (ACIT). Formed in 2016 ACIT are researching the social determinants of health within our communities. Essentially, how do the living conditions, employment, schooling and family situations all affect health outcomes. Conducting comprehensive research into these social determinants leads to immensely important data and analytics into how to best support the healthcare needs of our communities.
