Australia is helping Vanuatu to train its health workers, building their skills in areas such as nursing, as well as helping to build its health systems through providing much needed surgical services and equipment.

Australian aid saves lives: http://www.savethechildren.org.au/aid4change Many villages on Vanuatu’s outer islands are isolated and do not have access to basic services like healthcare. Although under-five child deaths have decreased over the past 10 years in Vanuatu, more children still die in rural areas compared with urban areas. Save the Children works with the Australian Government, the Ministry of Health in Vanuatu and communities to set up aid posts in villages that do not have access to health care. We also train and support the ongoing skills development of community volunteers known as Village Health Workers.

Communities of South Malekula Island in Vanuatu depend upon the health and vitality of their coral reef ecosystems. These threatened habitats provide coastal protection, as well as food and water security. The Vanua'tai Resource Monitors Network, with the assistance of Island Reach, is expanding in the region to assist community-managed conservation. Sustainable livelihoods are a key part of effective natural resource management. Women in the communities are earning income harvesting tamanu nuts which are sold overseas. This activity brings important income to the women to support their children's education and the well-being of their families.
For the last three months Tupaia MediTrak has been working with the Vanuatu Ministry of Health to map more than 150 health facilities and interview more than 300 health workers around the country. Mappers collect information about facilities, services, medicine availability and disaster preparedness.
