Details: The Pacific Biomedical Network (PBN) held its inaugural meeting in 2012 for biomedical engineers and technicians in the region. This platform was launched to create a forum where regional biomed experts were able to provide support, share experiences, and challenges and develop resolutions to the common challenges they faced.
Proposed recommendations from the Pacific Directors of Clinical Services meeting in
September 2022, included ongoing support for the PBN, strengthening the biomedical workforce
through capacity building and investment of governments and Health Ministries towards
biomedical workforce and equipment.
The objectives of the meeting are for member countries to share biomedical experiences,
challenges and to strengthen partnerships towards addressing biomedical priorities in
Topics of interest include:
- Capacity building: Strengthen knowledge and skills through training. The workshop
will include technical training of the electrical safety analyser on Day 1.
-Network: Support biomedical services and skills through strong collaboration and
-Leadership: Strengthen leadership and management skills for qualified biomedical
technicians targeted towards the country’s needs.
