Event Details

The biennial meetings of Ministers of Health for the Pacific Island Countries help develop a consensus view of health in the Pacific and set future directions in the effort to build Healthy Islands. A Healthy Islands vision aspires to a place where:

  • children are nurtured in body and mind
  • environments invite learning and leisure
  • people work and age with dignity
  • ecological balance is a source of pride and
  • the oceans that sustain us are protected.

Subsequent biennial meetings of Pacific ministers of health review progress toward the health islands vision in light of the evolving health landscape.
