The Pacific Community turned 75 on the 6th of February 2022. As we mark 75 years of the Pacific Community’s Service to the region, on the 6th of each month we will feature a key moment in history for the organization.
SPC's 75th anniversary: The Pacific Public Health Surveillance Network (PPHSN) - 25 years of networking and innovation towards health security in the Pacific
Over the past 25 years, SPC has been facilitating networking, sharing of information and knowledge between PICTs and partners to strengthen health security in the Pacific through the Pacific Public Health Surveillance Network (PPHSN).
In December 1995, SPC hosted the first discussions on the concept of a public health network for the Pacific and one year later PPHSN was launched at SPC Headquarters during the WHO/SPC Pacific Islands Meeting on Public Health Surveillance. Today, PPHSN connects more than 1000 health professionals from the Pacific and beyond.
