By LUKE RAWALAI
Friday, August 29, 2014

Update: 3:55PM ABOUT 8000 Catholic women from around the country converged in Solevu, Bua today for their annual meeting.

Speaking to the women from 35 parishes, Ministry of Health officials urged them to seek professional medical treatment in cases of maternal health problems.

The officials reminded them not to encourage the practice of some traditional treatment such as mata sili (sitz bath which involves the use of traditional  treatment -- in the hope of preventing cervical complications). 

Participants were urged to refrain from such treatment as it could worsen the patient's condition. 

 The meeting is an annual event where members of the league also raise money to help fund the needs of the church.
