FREE heart surgeries will be performed in the country by a team of Australian surgeons in May.
A team of medical professionals from Sydney Adventist Hospital, who are part of Open Heart International, are expected to review patients with heart diseases this week.
Formerly known as Operation Open Heart, the organisation changed its name last year.
The team has been coming to Fiji for the past 23 years and has performed 738 free surgeries since its inaugural trip to the country.
A statement from Open Heart International stated that up to 50 children and adults will be selected for life-changing surgery that will be conducted at the CWM Hospital.
"It is incredibly important that Fijians who believe they have a heart issue visit a doctor or their nearest clinic," said Open Heart International's project co-ordinator Melanie Windus.
"Doctors in the three main hospitals (Lautoka, Labasa and CWM) know how to refer patients to us if they believe the condition is serious."
