What We Do
Rocketship aims to strengthen primary healthcare systems in the Pacific by:
Where we work
Rocketship’s work in Vanuatu has included deploying volunteer doctors and nurses to provide essential medical care in areas of extreme workforce shortage; delivering training programmes for ni-Vanuatu doctors and nurses; and supporting vital research on the determinants of health in this spectacular, fascinating country.
Rocketship is proud to have helped establish the Diploma of Family Medicine programme in Timor-Leste, in collaboration with the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and the Universidade Nacional Timor Lorosa’e. Our ongoing support for this vital training programme continues to provide a bridge to healthcare for Timorese communities.
Rocketship is partnering with the Tongan Ministry of Health and Fiji National University to pilot a new postgraduate Family Medicine training programme. This will be the first of its kind in the region and will improve the quality of healthcare available to rural and outer island communities across the Kingdom.
