Use your public health experience to promote clean, healthy and safe conditions at the Auki New Market.

Research findings will help inform the environmental health strategic plan and how Division staff support vendors to implement healthy practices. Part of this work will involve hosting information sessions and crafting health promotion messages, posters and leaflets for market stakeholders and the public. You will also help to devise a waste disposal system for the market that can be implemented at other locations on the island.
