2 Overview of presentation Background info abut SSCSiP What SSCSiP is about Activities in the Northern Pacific Regionalism lens Lessons learnt Way forward

3 Strengthening Specialized Clinical Services in the Pacific Project Scope Level of clinical support beyond that of the primary health care worker Examples: surgery, internal medicine, paediatrics, anaesthetics and trauma/critical care, obstetrics and gynaecology.
