Background

The Tanna Island Project is a UOW student initiative now in its third successful year.  The project provides an opportunity to bring together university students with medicine, and public health backgrounds to work together towards health empowerment and capacity building in the communities of Tanna Island, Vanuatu. Additionally, with involvement from local health care workers and the Vanuatu Ministry of Health, the project has already increased Tuberculosis detection rates across the island, and provided local health care workers with the tools necessary to treat new cases.

Key Aims:
- Educating and training local health workers to better their existing Tuberculosis Surveillance program.
- Raising funds to support and expand the medical infrastructure in remote areas of Tanna.
- Visiting schools and clinics to promote health awareness and sanitation.
