The Voice of Pacific Women
The Voice of Pacific Women Network Group is made up of an enthusiastic team of Pacific women who are working together to promote good health and address other issues of importance to Pacific communities.
The Voice of Pacific Women first started broadcasting on Friday 20 October 2000 and the radio programme is still on air every Friday at 10am. The original presenters were Guinevere Newport and Lupe Tuulua from Diabetes Life Education. Other Pacific women have come and gone over the years but currently in the fold are Terisa Tagikacibau, Kathy Palmer, Diane Fenika and Melissa Stanley.
