MINISTER for Health Dr Neil Sharma confirms the ministry is expecting ear, nose and throat doctors from Israel to be in the country this August to conduct operations.

Dr Sharma said the surgeons planned to come back this year to support Fiji in their efforts in improving people's health.

"We have a very good working relationship between the Israeli Government through their Australian Embassy and our Health Ministry.

"In the past, they have been very supportive and they have provided us consumables in the area of diabetes," he said.

"They are providing us injections, needles and the equipment that can be used in a diabetic operation so that our treatments can improve in the area of diabetes."
