Abstract

Obesity is a significant public health issue in New Zealand, where two thirds of adults are overweight or obese.1 In New Zealand, Pacific people have a greater burden of overweight and obesity than others; 90% of Pacific adults experience overweight and obesity. Pacific rates of ischemic heart disease, stroke, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure are all also markedly greater than for other New Zealanders.
