The WHO Regional Office for the Western Pacific is now inviting Governments, local authorities (city councils, provinces, districts and villages), communities, organizations (including schools, workplaces, faith-based groups) and civil society groups in the 22 Pacific island countries and areas (PICs) to submit applications for Healthy Islands Recognition 2019 under the ‘best practice’ and ‘best proposal’ categories.

The Healthy Islands Award scheme for health promotion projects started in 2011. It was intended to encourage PICs to innovate and demonstrate effective and efficient ways of promoting and protecting the health of their populations.

There will be two winners from each of the two categories. Winners will receive 10,000 USD to further develop the project or programme set out in the application.

Don’t miss this opportunity to be recognized for your work to improve the health and quality of life of Pacific islanders!

Deadline for submission: 31st May 2019
