Health Minister Dr. Ifereimi Waqainabete has commended the work of young health officials working in rural and maritime areas.
Following his visit to Vanua Levu, Dr. Waqainabete says young nurses and doctors in the outer islands always work hard to ensure medical services are delivered to the people.
Despite numerous challenges they face on a daily basis, Dr Waqainabete says the ministry is looking at avenues to further assist them in the best way possible.
“Some of the areas they work in are very challenging, they are young and some of them are not used to being away from their families and working in a place where it’s new to them.”
Dr. Waqainabete says the government is currently looking at options to further develop and improve health service delivery in the rural areas.
