“Solomon Islands are currently facing new challenges, particularly in the health sector, natural disasters and climate change challenges, in this fast ever-changing environment we live in.”
Tahani believed that the new strategic plan will allow the SIRCS to be in a stronger position to deliver humanitarian services in such environment and happenings.
