58 Primary Health Organisations: Service development toolkit for mental health services in primary health care Pacific Health and Disability Action Plan The Pacific Health and Disability Action Plan envisions healthy people achieving their full potential throughout their lives. It outlines four key principles, which are that: dignity and the sacredness of life are integral to the delivery of health and disability services active participation of Pacific peoples in all levels of health and disability services is encouraged and supported successful Pacific services recognise the integral roles of Pacific leadership and Pacific communities Pacific peoples are entitled to excellent health and disability services that are co-ordinated, culturally competent and clinically sound.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
