Acting Australian High Commissioner Amanda Jewell handed over a new vehicle to the Executive Director of the Samoa Family Health Association (S.F.H.A.) Lealaiauloto Liai Iosefa Siitia last week.
The vehicle is to provide much needed mobile clinical outreach to rural Upolu and Savaii.
The vehicle is part of the Australian funded ‘Impact Project’ - a four year partnership between the International Planned Parenthood Federation (I.P.P.F.) and S.F.H.A. to improve sexual and reproductive health services in Samoa.
Ms. Jewell said health is one of the key priority areas supported by Australia through its bilateral development programme.
Lealaiauloto said the new vehicle would improve accessibility of S.F.H.A. services and improve delivery.
