Fiji is living with the constant threat and devastation of climate change-generated adverse weather events.
These were the sentiments echoed by Minister for Health & Medical Services Doctor Ifereimi Waqainabete over the weekend.
The Minister was part of the Fiji Medical Association Conference held at the Suva Civic Centre.
Dr. Waqainabete says the threat that climate change poses to health systems across the world is among the greatest.
He adds that small island states are directly at the forefront, facing the brunt of climate change where healthcare facilities sustain damage caused by cyclones, landslides, and floods.
