Every year, the Chief Executives of Micronesia meet to discuss and establish regional cooperation on a variety of issues that are of mutual concern to the region. Known as the Micronesian Islands Forum (MIF), this annual summit brings together the six governors and three presidents of Micronesia, as well as policy representatives from the US-affiliated Pacific Islands (USAPIs). During the 24th MIF Summit last week in Chuuk, the Micronesian Chief Executives unanimously endorsed and signed the Regional Health Committee’s two proposed resolutions; 1) concerning access to quality and comprehensive healthcare services for Pacific Island Veterans of the US Armed Forces and their families; 2) concerning strengthening USAPI health department capacities and systems to effectively address the health security threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
