Pacific Island Countries and Areas–WHO Cooperation Strategy 2018–2022


The report provides the overall strategic direction for WHO support to the Pacific. The Cooperation Strategy builds on the commitment to the Healthy Islands vision with four action oriented priorities, which were developed during the Eleventh Pacific Health Ministers Meeting in 2015. These are: (i) strengthening leadership, governance and accountability; (ii) nurturing children in body and mind; (iii) reducing avoidable disease burden and premature deaths; and (iv) promoting ecological balance.
