Update: 1:27PM RISE in teenage pregnancies, alcohol and drug abuse among our youths has prompted the Social Welfare, Women and Poverty Alleviation Ministry to set up family planning agents in all its women resource centres around the country.

This week, more than 20 participants gathered in Suva for a two-day workshop which ended today.

 Ministry representative Semisi Siga says the workshop aims to raise awareness of these concerns which are affecting our Fijian youths so the participantrs would spread the message when they return to their respective communities.
