The Organisation

Improving health services is a shared objective of Vanuatu and Australia and is important to the bilateral relationship. The high-level political commitment of Government of Vanuatu to health as a priority is demonstrated in the National Sustainable Development Plan 2016-2030 (NSDP) which applies the Sustainable Development Goals at the country level and references a healthy population as one of its national priorities, and includes targets for gender equality and reduction of gender based violence.

The goal of the VHP is effective delivery of the health components of the NSDP and commitment to health services demanded at national, provincial and local levels by a healthy, secure and productive population. The end of program outcomes (EOPOs) are:

a. Ministry of Health senior staff lead continuous improvement and strengthened accountability of the Vanuatu health sector; and

The role will engage with organisations and individuals across the Sanma provincial government with an interest in solving health service delivery problems and encourage a coordinated response, including strengthening linkages between provincial and national systems.
