Malaria elimination has been a recurring policy goal in Solomon Islands and has historically succeeded in attracting substantial donor support. Drawing on literature review and key informant interviews, we examine the influence of foreign aid on malaria control and elimination efforts in Solomon Islands between 2002 and 2016, as a unique case study...

The delivery of specialised clinical services in the small Island nations of the Pacific region is an increasing challenge in the context of a rising burden of non-communicable diseases.

Background All health systems struggle to meet health needs within constrained resources. This is especially true for low-income countries. It is critical that they can learn from wider contexts in order to improve their performance. This article examines policy transfer and evidence use linked to it in low- and middle-income settings. The objectiv...

— The principles of universal health coverage (UHC) are deeply embedded in health systems across the Pacific. UHC is also one of the stepping stones to achieving the Healthy Island vision, adopted by Pacific Health Ministers in 1995, which envisages healthy islands as places where citizens grow, learn, play and age with dignity. However recent evid...

It is not inconceivable that by 2035 the substantial gaps in child health across the Pacific can close significantly. Currently, Australia and New Zealand have child mortality rates of 5 and 6 per 1000 live births, respectively, while Pacific island developing nations have under 5 mortality rates ranging from 13 to 16 (Vanuatu, Fiji and Tonga) to 4...

The Asia Pacific region is in a state of transition. Despite great economic, social, and cultural diversity across the region, almost all countries have experienced economic and population growth thereby changing their World Bank income status. Several major donors use the transition from LIC to LMIC status to determine eligibility for resource allocation including UNFPA allocations to family planning. This project undertook three cases studies on donor transition in Lao PDR, Cambodia, and East Timor to understand UNFPA's opportunities and challenges for transition in these countries.
