IF elected into parliament this year, the National Federation Party has promised to review the salaries of doctors, nurses and health workers in Fiji and implement a new salary structure within six months of being in government.

Speaking at a committee meeting this week, party leader Professor Biman Prasad said given the services provided by nurses, more could be done to assist them.

"We are happy that the nurses' salaries have been reviewed and increased by government but they deserve more recognition that is sustainable and caters beyond the election year," Prof Prasad said.

"NFP will establish a policy statement and setting up means to redress all forms of discrimination against medical and allied health workers in the country with safeguarded welfare for all providers of health services."

He said health was something the country needed to invest more into because it was an important part of human life.

"NFP believes health is an unalienable human right. Investing in health is investing in our future.

"At the moment, there is no foresight when it comes to health and medicine. We aim to fix this."
