HEALTH system reforms and strengthening in the past five years have taken monumental leaps in Fiji.

These words were rendered by the Health Minister Dr Neil Sharma while commissioning CWM Hospital projects last week.

He said the newly-commissioned International Women's Association (IWA) Wellness Centre would provide a central hub for areas of women's health incorporating advocacy on family life, on women's sexual and reproductive health, family planning, cancer screening and counselling services.

"We had a fragile system with all components in areas of human resource, technology, infrastructure and pharmaceutical and medical consumable supplies in dire straits." Dr Sharma said.

"A multi-pronged approach was utilised to short-medium term gains and improvements."

Corporate sponsors Digicel and International Women's Association (IWA) were two that gave towards the much-needed hospital facilities.
