The Australian Government has injected around $46.5 million dollars to strengthen access to sexual and reproductive health.
This was highlighted by the Minister for Health and Medical Services Rosy Akbar while speaking at the opening of the Pacific Society for Reproductive Health Symposium.
Akbar says that reproductive Health Services is an important component of all maternal and public health services for the Health Ministry.
“Important thing that I would like you to deliberate is competing priorities among our target population therefore we need to improve our health promotion and social mobilization strategies to improve update on reproductive health services.”
Akbar says reproductive health is a major component as it is linked with many health indicators.
Meanwhile, she says the two day workshop will be focused on family planning, research, professional development and Pacific Emergency Maternal and Neonatal Training.
She says these workshops add value to the workforce who usually practice in remote and isolated acute care and community settings.
