A PANEL discussion with the theme "Families matter for the achievement of development goals" was held at USP's Oceania Centre last night where five panelists spoke on various issues relating to family life health in Fiji.

Youth advocate Paulini Turagabeci spoke strongly on the formation of family, violence against women and children and the cycle of violence in our communities.

She said people who planned to start their own family should be educated and should consider new approaches to assist in preventing families from living in poverty.

Minister for Women Dr Jiko Luveni was on the panel, joined by Bau paramount chief Ratu Joni Madraiwiwi, Methodist Church secretary for communication Reverend James Bhagwan, USP's Dr Bruce Yeates and Gender Advisor for UNFPA Maha Muna.

Fiji joined the world yesterday to commemorate International Day of the Families.
