JICA Helps Train Nurses in 3 Pacific Nations

The Japan International Cooperation Agency will help train nurses in Fiji, Tongo and Vanuatu.

The three-year, USD5 million project aims to develop an overall in-service training policy for nurses, set up a nationally standardized monitoring and evaluation system for the training of health workers, offer nursing management training courses, and coordinate all types of in-service training for community nurses.

Fiji’s Ministry of Health will spearhead in providing technical advice to regional counterparts in Tonga and Vanuatu.
