THE health ministry and United Nations Population Fund's (UNFPA) Fiji Repositioning Family Planning Conference which starts at Viseisei, Vuda today is expected to take an in-depth look at the country's family planning policy and guideline review.

At the end of the three-day forum, organisers hope to share and discuss the findings of the Family Planning Report to assist the health ministry and relevant stakeholders in planning the upscaling of responsive and youth-friendly family planning services in the country.

Also on the agenda are plans to identify, build and strengthen partnerships with traditional leaders, faith-based organisations, community groups, youth, the private sector and relevant stakeholders.

Participants will also discuss and come to a consensus on strategies to reposition and mainstream sustainable family planning services in the country.

Key speakers expected during the conference are Archbishop Elect Father Peter Chong Loy, Doctor Swaran Naidu from the Viseisei Sai Health Centre, Kesaia Seniloli and Wame Baravilala.
