Amio Matenga Ikihele

Amio Matenga Ikihele of Niuean heritage is among nine recipients of the 2023 Winston Churchill Fellowship.

The  Winston Churchill Fellowships help New Zealanders from all walks of life to travel overseas, research topics of significance and return with inspiration and experience that benefits their careers, communities and New Zealand. 

Board Chair Joy Tracey says, “The nine Winston Churchill Fellowships cover a diverse range of topics – film production, archaeological repositories, community philanthropy foundations, civics education and democratic participation, parent-led community programmes for parents of impaired vision children, digital health equity, prisoner re-entry into the community, diabetic foot care, and water management.”

Amio will explore how digital health equity is being addressed in underserved communities in the USA, to inform the development of a digital health ecosystem that aims to ensure future healthcare using digital health technologies that are culturally acceptable and equitable for Pacific communities.

Joy Tracey says, “I would like to congratulate all the recipients. They will be bringing back to New Zealand a wealth of valuable experiences and knowledge. I look forward to hearing more about their experiences.”
