CSIRO Partners to Strengthen Regional Health

Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO, has announced it will partner with governments across the Pacific and Southeast Asia to help them better prepare for, and respond to, disease outbreaks. According to CSIRO Chief Executive, Dr Doug Hilton, the organisation will partner with nations including Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, the Philippines, and Fiji to improve their ability to identify, track and react to health emergencies.

“Building stronger, more resilient health systems in the Pacific and Southeast Asia creates shared success, prosperity, stability and trust in science,” Dr Hilton said. “It protects human and animal health; ensures equitable and inclusive health outcomes; and strengthens regional economic security, productivity, trade, tourism and development.”

Under the agreements, CSIRO will offer access to its multidisciplinary expertise across animal and human health. This will also include access to its facilities, such as the Australian Centre for Disease Preparedness (ACDP), National Vaccine and Therapeutics Lab, and Australian e-Health Research Centre. The new partnerships are part of the Australian Government’s five-year $620 million Partnerships for a Healthy Region initiative, which is supporting partner nations to build resilient and equitable health systems.

Domino’s Ridiculous Meal Saver Turns One

I don’t normally celebrate the birthday of fast food menu items, but this one has specifically helped me get through the cost of living crisis, and apparently, I am not alone. Since it launched a year ago, over five million Aussies and Kiwis have snagged a serious deal by tucking into the My Domino’s Box. If you aren’t aware, this cheap and cheerful option is fully customisable and includes your choice of a hot, cheesy Mini Pizza or Meltzz and two sides – either sweet or savoury – from just $7 pick-up. Ridiculous.
