Description

BACKGROUND

The Solomon Islands is a double chain archipelago of more than 900 islands with a landmass of 28,400km2 and over 1.3 million km2 of Territorial Ocean. The country is considered as a fragile and least developing country (UN LDC status), with total population of 599,419[1] and annual birth cohort to be around 19,000 infants. There are nine provinces plus one city council in the country. With the vast expanse of territories inhibited by relatively small and widely dispersed populations, Solomon Islands shows unique characteristics in terms of supply chain management challenges.

Solomon Islands continues to make progress in reducing child mortality. Under-five mortality rate reported as 24 per 1000 live births[2], ad infant mortality rate of 19 per 100 live births- which is 80% of under-five mortality. The major causes of child mortality include pneumonia and diarrhoea, with underlying stunting of about 33%. About 80% of all inpatient paediatric hospitalization is due to pneumonia or underlying acute respiratory infection. In addition, the country is said to be facing antimicrobial resistance.  All these underscore the importance of ensuring a robust IMCI program in the country. To support the MHMS in reducing child morbidity and mortality, and reaching its IMCI targets, the Ministry of Health and Medical Services (MHMS) of the Solomon Islands, through its IMCI program, seeks technical assistance to conduct a review of the IMCI program by conducting a national IMCI program review in a workshop and draft a costed multi-year action plan.
