RACS’s Global Health Program provides mentoring, training and education and clinical support to the strengthening of specialist care services in low- and middle-income countries in the Asia-Pacific. Through its Pacific Island Program (PIP), RACS works across 11 Pacific Island Countries, with funding from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs (DFAT).

This end of program evaluation is intended to provide an assessment of progress towards the program outcomes, as well as provide a process-level assessment which will develop ‘lessons learnt’ recommendations to improve ongoing implementation of the PIP (2022 – 2026).

We will be engaging with key stakeholders to collect primary data including local Ministry of Health staff, visiting medical team volunteers, Pacific clinicians and health administrators, PIP program staff, and regional program stakeholders including DFAT, Fiji National University and Pacific Community.

Findings and recommendations will be made by the end of 2022.
