Health support

INDIA will continue to support the Fiji Government in improving its health care sector, says Acting Indian High Commissioner Vikrant Rattan.

Speaking in Labasa yesterday, Mr Rattan said his government had been supportive of the work done by the Kidney Foundation of Fiji.

He said India's support to Fiji had been in the form of dialysis machines and other equipment for the foundation's new dialysis centre and the purchase of medication.

"In addition to this, the private health care sector in India has also shown keen interest in partnering with key organisations in Fiji," he said.

"An agreement between the Sahyadri Group of Hospitals in Pune and the Ministry of Health in Fiji was signed in July 2012 to provide tertiary health care facilities in Fiji.

"A delegation from the Apollo Hospitals signed a memorandum of understanding with the Fiji National University for co-operation in training and capacity-building and organising telemedicine along with a mobile health program."

Mr Rattan said other private hospitals in India, including Fortis, had excellent relationships with various stakeholders in Fiji.

"The bilateral cooperation in the area of health care between India and Fiji has been growing every year and we would endeavour to strengthen this partnership further to become an integral part of the vision," he said.
