From the Introduction: "The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) is one of the six US affiliated island jurisdictions in the Pacific region, consisting of four island groups that are referred to as the four states of the FSM. Island groups are Chuuk, Pohnpei, Kosrae and Yap; each state with their own unique settings which includes remote lagoon and outer islands that are only accessible by small out boat motors, small commercial 7-seater plane, government or private ships and most with limited or no connectivity at all. [...] The FSM NIP [national implementation plan] is seeking funding assistance and vaccine support from US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Immunization and Vaccine for Children Funds to help continue its efforts to plan, develop, improve and maintain its public health infrastructure to help assure high covid-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] coverage levels and low morbidity and mortality rates, by expanding its program activities to reach out to all FSM population starting with the high risk subgroups within the nation."
