EU gives €3m for Pacific public health
Quoting Radio New Zealand – 22 February 2020
“The European Union has given $US3.2 million to the Pacific Public Health Surveillance Network for a new project strengthening health security in the region.
“The Pacific Community's director of public health, Dr Paula Vivili, said it was the first time the EU had contributed to the network.
“The four year project is commencing at a time the region's public health systems are under pressure, Dr Vivili said.
“The project focuses on four areas: capacity strengthening on surveillance and epidemiology, laboratory services and systems, vector and disease surveillance and control, and risk communication.”
