Workshops and other activities

During 2018, a number of workshops and meetings have been delivered in many of the Pacific Island Countries. These include PEMNeT, Family Planning, Ultrasound, Colposcopy and Research in Reproductive Health. More workshops are being are planned for delivery. Workshops are funded by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons Pacific Islands Programme, Secretariat of the Pacific Commission (SPC) and United Nations Population Fund. PSRH would like to acknowledge our funders and partners who have supported the delivery of these workshops.  A list of workshops completed and being planned appears in the table below.

 

The second edition of the PEMNET Manual and Guideline is under review and this work has been led by Professor Alec Ekeroma and Dr Sharron Bolitho. The review is needed so that the manual remains relevant for Pacific island settings. The new edition will be launched as soon as it is ready.
