Pillar 1 – Health Security in Samoa


Australia is supporting Samoa’s health system preparedness and outbreak response capabilities, including to plan, deliver and monitor responses to COVID-19.

We are also continuing our long-standing support to address ongoing communicable and non-communicable diseases, and access to sexual and reproductive health services.
