Our Members

Below is a list of the Pacific Disability Forum's members, grouped by country.  If you would like more information on how to become a member, visit the Become a Member page.

Our Full Members are Disabled Persons Organisation, where the majority of the board must have a disability, and that are based or substantially operate in the Pacific. Associate members are Pacific based organisations which are concerned with disability but are not necessarily governed by a board with a majority of persons with disabilities.  Associate membership is also open to individuals.
