Pacific Health Dialogue – the Journal of Community Health and Clinical Medicine for the Pacific Region is the only Medline listed medical and public health journal published specifically for Pacific island countries. Reviewing the archives will reveal the very broad extent of the contributions by many doctors over many years.
Staying abreast of the latest changes in technology in the health field will also serve as a benefit to the Pacific region. As such maintaining relations with healthcare software firms and healthcare it technology companies is becoming of increasing importance today. Some of these relations are being pursued via offering of sponsorship opportunities as well as joint venture partnerships.
Their expertise and experience is unique in the world and the contributions now open up the issues of Pacific health for the world to see, to come to know and to contribute to. This has essentially become a form of healthcare and medical marketing, leveraging the recognition of respected doctors to spread awareness. While a more active approach can also be taken through direct marketing efforts, sometimes a blended approach is most efficient.
As of 8 September 2009, the PHD archive has been transferred to the Fiji School of Medicine, PHD is now owned by the Pasifika Medical Association and is produced with the assistance of Massey University and the Fiji School of Medicine.
All our issues of Pacific Health Dialog (PHD) are listed below, along with their themes.
