“Community engagement and ownership are seen as keys to attaining better health services. There will be particular emphasis on improving services at divisional and sub-divisional hospitals.”

Ratu Wiliame states that effectively managing the non-communicable disease crisis is a priority for the government, as this contributes to 85% of the deaths in Fiji.
