Roundtable forum on regional health issues jointly affecting Australia and the South Pacific

The roundtable’s terms of reference are to cover a range of regional health issues in advance of the Committee’s delegation visit to Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands.

The roundtable will complement the Committee’s earlier discussions in Cairns and the Torres Strait on cross-border health concerns, including, malaria, dengue fever, and the spread of communicable diseases such as drug resistant tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS.

The Committee invites interested persons and organisations to make submissions addressing the terms of reference by Friday 25 September 2009. Please refer to our brochure called preparing a submission for more information.

In order to facilitate electronic publishing of submissions, the Committee would prefer them to be emailed to or sent on disk or CD-ROM to the Committee Secretariat in Microsoft Word® or Portable Document Format (PDF).
