CONCLUSION: The healthcare providers and policymakers need to be involved in recognising iTaukei community culture and appreciate traditional methods to promote equitable community participation in decision-making for health promotion. SO WHAT?: Community-wide lifestyle interventions, conceptual approaches based on communal perceptions of the problem at hand can also be the basis for future research on identifying socio-cultural factors, for example, the community and family support that can help shape behaviours.

CONCLUSION: This study contributes new insights and depth of understanding about how the empowerment programme can strengthen the process of individual capacity in an effort to mobilise social change for the betterment of the whole community, particularly among indigenous Pasifika population groups. SO WHAT?: Developing empowerment principles will enable others to consider 'how apply' empowerment more practically when working with young people, and not use it flippantly with no real action-oriented outcome.
