The Pacific Health Governance Research Network (PHGRN) is proud to announce its second Workshop, being hosted from 21-22 February by Fiji National University (FNU), the Pacific Community (SPC) and the University of Queensland, at the Tanoa International Hotel in Nadi, Fiji.
The PHGRN is building a network to create spaces for research partnerships between Pacific researchers and stakeholders, and Australian and international counterparts. The network focuses on health governance in relation to the SDGs agenda, seeking to help the region meet goals and targets, and ensure that no-one is left behind. Research and actions under the PHGRN will be consistently informed by Pacific voices, to ensure integration of local knowledge into research and that research addresses practical local needs leading to positive change in the Pacific.
The PHGRN is organised into five major research themes which are designed to capture the diverse and overlapping challenges and opportunities for health and policy in the Pacific region and the broader context of the Sustainable Development Goals agenda. The five core themes are:
- Health Security
- Health Systems and Universal Health Coverage
- Climate Change and Health
- Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)
- Non-Communicable Diseases
A draft of the Workshop Program is now available here [PDF].
The RDI Network is proud to have sponsored scholarships for regional researchers and practitioners to attend both the first and second PHGRN workshops. The first PHGRN workshop was hosted by the University of Queensland in February 2018.
