Latest update on 13 November 2012

Purpose of this mailing list

This mailing list aims to ease the information sharing among the researchers, officers, practitioners, students and living people in Melanesia (Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Fiji and New Caledonia).

In the 21st century, Melanesian countries widely suffer from the double-burden problem of health and are going to suffer from triple-burden problem in urban area. In such situation, health and nutrition must be targeted by all stakeholders including living people. There are common risk factors like betel-chewing and socio-cultural factors like WANTOK system and pigin language, so that it will be fruitful to widely discuss and share information of health and nutrition in this area.
