Literature relevant to Pacific elders’ wellbeing in urban settings in Aotearoa New Zealand is reviewed, drawing on the Fonofale model for Pacific health and a social determinants of health approach. Social connectivity, mobility and physical activity are the primary health and wellbeing outcomes examined. Non-communicable disease (NCD) prevalence and health status among Pacific peoples, and Pacific health definitions and models, provide a background to the literature review. Lifestyle-related behaviours, such as nutrition and physical activity, Pacific culture, religion, public health information, the built environment, and social influences are among the topics discussed.
