Fertility indicators for the Pacific

At the recent Health Minister's Meeting in Honiara in July, Minister's were presented with an InfoGraphic on fertility indicators for five Pacific countries.  Staff from health and statistics worked together for two weeks at SPC offices in Noumea to produce this information, which will be presented in country civil registration and vital statistics reports.  This work is part of the ongoing activities with the Brisbane Accord Group.

InfoGraphics are interesting ways of displaying information using minimal text and lots of pictures, graphics and colours.  If you would like help with designing an InfoGraphic for your country's data, please contact the PHIN Secretariat.
