Technical and Ministerial Meeting reflects on health system strengthening


Over the past 2 days, the Technical Experts have been reflecting on strengthening health systems and on areas relating to reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health.

It has been identified that existing health systems require strengthening mechanisms in the Pacific for increasing resilience. Strengthening health systems will allow the Pacific to cope with the health threats posed by climate.

The meeting objectives have been to introduce the renewed Global Strategy for Women’s, Children’s and Adolescents’ Health, a key delivery platform for the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, and identify steps towards implementation and investment in the Global Strategy for the Pacific Island Countries.

While reflecting on the impacts of climate change on Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health (RMNCAH) and the RMNCAH contribution to the resilience of Pacific Island populations to climate change.
