Attended high level event to enhance the quality of debate in the Asia-Pacific region on the effectiveness of aid in the region and to promote innovation.
Ongoing discussions with Australian aid and other global donors around progressing technical evidence based service provided to governments and providers of maternal and family health services.
This event contributed to international, regional and domestic debate around Millennium Development Goals (MDG) in the lead up to the Pacific Forum and UN Leaders MDG Summit in New York September 2010. Open lines of communication built with other key development stakeholders potentially results in possible partnerships as well as more cohesive projects with less duplication.
