The Australian Regional Immunisation Alliance (ARIA), supported by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s Indo-Pacific Centre for Health Security, will increase engagement with partner governments in support of immunisation programs in the Pacific region, including Timor-Leste, Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands.

ARIA members will consult with Indo-Pacific country health ministries and other key stakeholders to identify and strengthen specific capacity-building projects, including support for the elimination of measles and preparation for the introduction of a COVID-19 vaccine.
