Building and Infrastructure


Pacific Islands Health and Education Limited (PIHEL) is working with local communities to develop appropriate infrastructure to house the Health and Education services  that are required. 


Please help us to provide these services.


We are seeking to raise significant funds over the next five years to build medical facilities and a training centre in Luganville on the Island of Espiritu Santo in Vanuatu.  This complex will work with and complement the Provincial Hospital and provide much needed diagnostic and treatment services in partnership with the Department of Health facilities. There are currently no such services available to patients in the Northern Islands of Vanuatu outside of travelling 270 km to Vila, the Vanuatu capital.  The training facility will provide the ability to follow a vocational path from secondary education through to professional health and medical qualifications in association with local and international education institutions. 


It is very important that all development is culturally and environmentally appropriate but also able to withstand the significant cyclones and earth tremors which are prevalent in the Pacific Islands.  As well as the structural requirements, buildings must be able to accomodate the equipment and processes required for diagnosis and procedures such as for radiology, pathology, surgery and the like.


PIHEL is committed to ensuring that sustainability and protection of the environment are fundamental requirements of all infrastructure development. Local trades people are employed on all projects and materials sourced locally wherever possible. All government and local authority requirements are rigorously followed and all wages and entitlements for employees are according to those set in awards and Government Regulation.
