About WHO in the South Pacific

The WHO Representative Office in the South Pacific, located in Suva, Fiji, operates under the umbrella of the Western Pacific regional office, and our role is to act as a catalyst and advocate for action at all levels, from local to global, on health issues of public concern. We work together with a broad spectrum of partners from all sectors of society, WHO is involved in a host of closely related public health activities; including research, evaluation, awareness raising and resource mobilization.

Our purpose is to lead the regional response to public health issues on all fronts - medical, technical, socio-economic, cultural, legal and political - towards the achievement of WHO's global health mission which is to support all countries and peoples in their quest to achieve the highest attainable level of health. This is defined in the WHO Constitution as "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
