Education and Health Sector

The SolarSPELL team first brought robust health sector content to Vanuatu. This led to the involvement of ASU’s College of Nursing and Health Innovations with the SolarSPELL project, as well as in-field engagement by ASU Doctoral Nursing students. The team has had the opportunity to see firsthand how the SolarSPELL library is being used in both rural schools and health care clinics across Vanuatu, and to visit with some amazing and dedicated volunteers there. Vanuatu Peace Corps volunteers work in the Education and Health sectors.
