Our Company

SPAH is a not for profit charity public ancillary fund

South Pacific Allied Health was established in 2012 in response to the needs of the people of the Makira Province
in the Solomon Islands. Through our Adopt-A-Village program our teams meet face to face with local communities to provide care, and assist people with the process of helping themselves. We work with other organizations, governments, non-profits and a variety of local partners while maintaining our own independence without social bias. 

Our Strategy

SPAH works with its In Country Partner in the Solomon Islands who have been established there for 60 years.
The SDA Solomon Islands MIssion (SIM) is a government endorsed organisation. They are in close partnership with ADRA (operating in 120 countries world wide) and are also in direct consultation with the WHO. So a fully cooperative group of organisations exist that SPAH is in partnership with to achieve its aid and development goals engaging all of the elements of Project Cycle Management. Read more

Our Results

Thanks to the support of our donors and partners South Pacific Allied Health has been able to expand its influence across the Makira Province and is now reaching neighbouring provinces. We have been funded by local community, sporting clubs and private investors. Our ongoing relationship with benefactors has maintained our viability and will guarantee our effectiveness into the future. Read more
