Better access to healthcare

Rebecca Medhurst
Sunday, March 16, 2014

A scheme has been put in place by Save the Children to equip communities with better access to basic healthcare.

Fourteen health workers from kindergartens in Suva and Nasouri will be trained in basic healthcare as part of the Community Child Nutrition Project.

Save the Children Fiji's health manager Ashweeni Lata believes the program will break barriers between health workers and communities and form a closer link between communities and the Health Ministry.

"This training will also be adaptable to what the community workers needs on the ground and what their level of skills," Ms Lata said.
