Early intervention is impossible without awareness.
This was highlighted by Minister for Women Mereseini Vuniwaqa while officiating at Hilton Organisation Wheelbarrow Race at Albert Park in Suva this morning.
Vuniwaqa adds stakeholders need to work together to ensure the development of children born with disabilities are continuously monitored.
She stressed appropriate intervention is needed at every stage.
Vuniwaqa says heightened awareness will mean an increased need for such services as those provided by the Frank Hilton Organisation.
The Organization has been providing early intervention services to children with disabilities for over 50 years.
