The CHIPSR was established following the increasing realization that financing health care (especially in small Pacific Island nations where health costs are increasing faster that economic growth and government revenues) needed evidence-based research to ensure the development of national policies that addressed the long-term sustainability of health care financing, and the provision of equitable health services for Fiji and the Pacific.

It is anticipated that the CHIPSR will become a major research unit of the College and will provide the opportunity for staff, students and College adjunct staff to research operational issues and to provide evidence for health policy developments in Fiji and the Pacific.
