By LUKE RAWALAI

Update: 12:30PM AROUND 1745 health workers have benefitted from professional development courses provided by Pacific Open Health Learning Network centres in hospitals around the country.

Speaking at the official opening of the new POHLN centre in Labasa yesterday, Minister for Health Dr Neil Sharma said this was almost half of the establishment within his ministry.

"The POHLN program, a partnership between WHO and Ministry of Health, has been growing in importance for Fiji in terms of health workers' professional development to enable them to provide quality health services for the people of Fiji."

Years back, in-service training for our health workers was a bit ad hoc and limited but this is changing as technology advances.
