PMA CEO, Debbie Sorensen, says it was imperative that a PACMAT team was deployed on this mission to help aid Niue in their Covid-19 response.
"We are working closely with MFAT to respond to the needs of the Niue Government; we are looking to send up a team of three Niuean nurses and a doctor.
We have a long standing relationship with the Government of Niue and are committed to supporting our island nations when there is a call for help."
PMA Group Board Director, Sir Collin Tukuitonga KNZM, FNZCPHM, says the PACMAT team will be a huge asset in supporting Niue's current outbreak of Covid-19.
"The current wave of Covid-19 in Niue will see this time as being a busy period for healthcare workers on the island.
PMA providing support by sending a PACMAT team will mean that this will relieve pressure on medical staff. As well as being a Niuean team, they come with the experience of having navigated the Covid-19 pandemic in New Zealand."
The PACMAT Niue team will be deployed to the island next week Saturday 17 December 2022.
