Pacifi c health

ByYvonne Crichton-Hill, Tanya McCall, Genevieve Togiaso

A range of conceptual models have been developed to contribute to our understanding of how health interventions with Pacifi c communities might best be delivered. There is little doubt that initiatives focused on improving the health status of the Pacifi c population need to continue.
