NON-communicable diseases continue to be a major health concern in Fiji.

And this time Asco Motors has joined the fight against the leading killer disease in the country.

The company last week gave five digital TV screens to the Health Ministry. Company marketing officer Elenoa Korovulavula said they were delighted to partner the ministry in tackling NCDs.

"We are starting off with five digital screens in five of the leading medical hospitals around Fiji and our target is 20," Ms Korovulavula said.

"Probably in the next couple of months or years, you will be seeing our brands in hospitals and we are proud of this project, which goes to the ministry in tackling NCD."

Health Minister Dr Neil Sharma said stakeholders would have to look at innovative and new ways of addressing NCDs.
