The Government has launched a national plan aimed at improving the lives of Pacific Island people with disabilities.

Associate Health Minister Tariana Turia says the Faiva Ora plan will improve their access to support services.

She says the plan will support people to live in their own homes, participate in their communities and free themselves from the barriers that might otherwise hold them back.
