Improving health service

PUBLIC-PRIVATE partnership has been a highlight of co-operation between the Ministry of Health and the private sector to ensure the infrastructural development of the health sector.

Highlighting some important projects in the Western Division that were spearheaded by government and the private sector, Minister of Health Dr Neil Sharma said these partnerships were important to improve service delivery from health professionals.

He said a new partnership between resorts in Sigatoka and the Ministry of Health was an excellent example of key stakeholders working together for the betterment of society.

"When you look at public-private partnerships, this is an excellent example of what is happening in our communities," Dr Sharma said.

"We are grateful to the hoteliers here in Sigatoka for working with the ministry to develop your maternity unit in Sigatoka hospital.

"This will compliment upgrades and new infrastructure at the new Cuvu Health Centre and the Keiyasi Health Centre."

He said other examples of this type of co-operation was the construction of the new $23million Ba Hospital.

The minister officiated at the ground-breaking ceremony of a new maternity unit in Sigatoka yesterday.
