Pacific Ministers of Health Meeting

The Cook Islands hosted the Pacific Ministers of Health Meeting 28-30 August 2017. Ministers again emphasized the importance of civil registration and vital statistics to the health sector, including the monitoring of key regional priorities such as the impact of non-communicable disease, and reporting on the Pacific “Healthy Islands” Framework and the Sustainable Development Goals. The meeting noted the importance of continuing improvement of data on births, deaths and causes of death through health information systems and a multi-sectoral approach to CRVS. The meeting also made note of the importance of regional cooperation and working with regional partnerships such as the Brisbane Accord Group (BAG) and the Pacific Health Information Network (PHIN).
