Then University clinic is located at Panatina campus and is manned by 2 full-time registered nurses and 1 nurse aid. The clinic is registered under the Honiara City Council so it also serves the health needs of the surrounding communities. Cases that are beyond the clinicโ€™s capacity are referred to the National Referral Hospital in Town which about 10 โ€“ 15 minutesโ€™ drive from the clinic.
In the same building we also have a newly built โ€˜Youth Friendly Centreโ€™. The functions of the center are:

  • To provide counseling to youths generally on how to look after their bodies. This includes counseling on teenage and unwanted pregnancies.
  • To provide awareness on STD (Sexually Transmitted Diseases), HIV and AIDS.
