Congratulations to Successful Applicants of the Pacific Community Child Health Grant
Last month TAHA was able to provide small child health grants for Pacific community groups to deliver three-month projects focused on improving health literacy or health behaviours for children and their families. The grants were made possible through the Ministry of Health Pacific Innovations Fund which funded a six-month Tapuaki extension project.
