THE Rotary Club of Suva together with the Health and Education ministry have officially launched a campaign to help raise awareness of the dangers and prevalence of rheumatic heart disease (RHD) in Fiji.

The partnership means that in June this year, an entire week (June 2-7) will be dedicated to engaging members of the public about the importance of raising awareness of issues relating to the disease in the country.

The tag line, or theme of the week, will be "A Sore Throat Can Kill You".

Officiating at the ceremony in Suva was the Health Ministry's chief pediatrician Dr Joe Kado, Rotary Club of Suva president Adrian Hughes and the Education Ministry's Basundra Kumar, who said it was crucial that the "crisis" of RHD be addressed as quickly and as effectively as possible and by the end of the week everyone would know about it.
