ImageHealth-e, an online network for journalists covering health issues in the region, was launched in May 2007 at the biennial conference of the Pacific Islands News Association (PINA) in Honiara, Solomon Islands. As the network develops, it will provide opportunities to build information gathering, information sharing and information checking bridges between journalists and our regional health sector. Among its benefits, Health-e will give journalists direct access to regional technical advisers and other key health experts as they join the online group, and will provide an online discussion space for newsrooms to link up and raise questions, table stories, seek contacts and dig deeper into Pacific health issues. Health-e was created on the recommendation of the regional media and health workshop conducted in the lead up to PINA by SPC’s Public Health Programme in collaboration with PINA and the Media Association of the Solomon Islands (MASI).
