THE Health Ministry this week hosted a consultation workshop for the draft Disability Inclusive Health and Rehab Strategic Plan 2014-2018.

Opening the workshop on Wednesday morning, Health Minister Dr Neil Sharma said service provisions for children with disabilities and rehabilitation in Fiji was of great importance to the ministry and they would work to make sure the strategic plan expressed that.

"Fiji's rehabilitation sector has well-established programs that have developed over a long period and there have been recent new initiatives, including the expansion of beds at Tamavua Rehabilitation Hospital, increased training of community rehabilitation services at FNU and support to increase provision of prosthetic and orthotic devices," Dr Sharma said.
