Health awareness through music

FOR the first time in Fiji and the region, the Ministry of Health and the High Commission of India in association with the local city and town councils organised a cultural event specifically for health awareness promotion.

And it was a musical night with a difference at the National Gymnasium at Laucala Bay in Suva on Saturday night.

A similar event was organised in Labasa on Friday night.

Although people did not turn up in numbers on Saturday night, the spirit however did not dampen the entertainers who took those present by surprise with their unique voice and dance.

Health permanent secretary Doctor Josefa Koroivueta, who was the guest speaker, said the cultural event compromised a 10-member musical group from India in the country accompanying the Sahyadri Hospitals specialist team.

The team, he said, would do free screenings in Labasa, Suva, Ba and Lautoka.

He said programs would be designed to be promoted through music.

"This musical night is another opportunity to learn about Sahyadri Hospitals, but in a relaxed and musical environment, free of charge," Dr Koroivueta said.
