Improved health outcomes throughout the Solomon Islands via Nurse Training

The Solomon Islands Education Project is well recognised by the local community. With a backdrop of chronic poverty, school fees, expensive inter-island travel and increasing levels of child labour, many young people are at risk of never attaining education qualifications adequate to secure meaningful employment.

This project is based at the Atoifi Hospital, Malaita Island, recognised by the prime minister of the country, Manasseh Sogovare, who has praised the hospital and its team saying, “this is one of the best hospitals in Solomon Islands – one of the most respected and well equipped." The project will support national women and men who are passionate about health care as they undertake an accredited 3 year Nurse Training course.

The majority of graduates, upon completion of their course, return to the village context and manage health clinics. Increasing the number of nurse graduates will help improve health in the villages throughout the country.
