Fono Fale - Questions and Answers

So today I have created a document explaining the answers to questions about the Fono Fale. 

What is the fono fale?

The fono fale is a model which was created by Fuimaono Karl Pulotu-Endermann as a Pacific Island model of health. The concept of the Samoan Fale or house is used as an image to describe a Pacific view of important factors in healthy development.

What is different about it  compared to Hāuora?

The fono fale is a model representing the Pacific Island Model of Health - This is the Samoan version of Health , while the Hāuora is based on a Marae/whare representing the Maori Model of Health - This is the Maori version of Health.

What is similar compared to Hāuora?

Fono Fale and Hāuora are both based on a Model of Health but are both represented by different culture - Hāuora (Maori) - Fono Fale (Samoan).

Do you like the Hāuora model or the Fono Fale model more? Why?

To me personally, I will have to like the Hāuora more because I know more about this Model, I understand this Model as well, while I don’t have a clue about the Fono Fale model, I haven’t learnt about this Model either but I would like to learn about it in the future.
