Church joins NCD fight

Torika Tokalau

CHURCH members of the Seventh-day Adventist are being educated on health promoting initiatives they can pass down to their communities.

The church held training as part of their efforts to fight against non-communicable diseases.

Event organiser Atelini Dakua said after seeing the high level of NCD cases in Fiji, the church felt it needed to train members to help tackle the prevailing NCD challenge.

"The main target is to educate our church members so they can become beacons in their communities," Ms Dakua said.

"I believe we have a more advanced health system in Fiji compared to most Pacific Island countries.

"And the new initiative and the introduction of Wellness Fiji will not only provide the solution for this nation but could also be a model for all Pacific island nations to adopt."
