Health of Fijian people depends on the strength of public health

PH meeting

Actg. Permanent Secretary for Health and Medical Services Dr Mecuisela Tuiakau with the senior Staff of the Ministry

Officially opening the Public Health Manager’s meeting last week, the acting Permanent Secretary for Health & Medical Services Dr Meciusela Tuicakau declared that the health of Fijians depends on the strength of public health.

The theme for this meeting was raising the bar and building seamless connections. Public health must continue to promote wellness and well-being. It is critical that the public health sector works together with clinical health workers and other key stakeholders to raise the bar in both health care settings.

In order to build seamless connections, the Health Ministry is striving towards greater cooperation with public and private communities including clinicians, city planners, education officials, communities, and for-profit organizations; everyone who has an impact towards health.
