"On 11 and 12 December 2017, the Australian High Commissioner, H.E. Mr Roderick Brazier met with Mr Tommy Esau, the leader of the Conservation and Research Team at the Atoifi Adventist Hospital.

The research team is predominantly made up of locals from East Kwaio, Malaita, in collaboration with various overseas partners. The team's involvement with the highlands communities in East Kwaio is through a community and participative approach, where aspects of their work focus on conservation, research and preservation regarding local plants, insects and animals.

The hard working team have also worked on health research for Atoifi Adventist Hospital through a grassroots Learning-By-Doing approach. Here, the group's aim is to conduct research that enables the hospital and communities to understand health issues affecting local communities, as well as find ways to mitigate and manage infectious diseases.

Thank you to the Conservation and Research Team at the Atoifi Adventist Hospital for sharing their work and findings with the Australian High Commission."
