The Secretariat’s role in contributing to regional oversight, advocacy work and up skilling of clinicians has been crucial. The CEO, Mrs Ireen Manuel represented PSRH at the recent UNFPA meeting held in Nadi Fiji in September.
The workshop discussed issues related to health workforce development for Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Adolescent and Child in the Pacific. PSRH shared its work in the Pacific on how it is contributing to this agenda. Together with other RMNCAH partners and stakeholders, we anticipate that PSRH’s role in capacity development is of critical importance to further strengthen RMNCAH services in the Pacific. A number of NGOs and other partners were present at this meeting to support the UNFPA workshop. PSRH is keen to collaborate with UNFPA in this area and continues to collaborate with other RMNCAH colleagues at regional and national levels so that our efforts and initiatives are appropriately aligned and harmonized, and respond to local needs.
