“Well obviously, in a place like Nausori, we want to make sure that the medicine are available when needed, that we have enough staff when necessary, that all lab equipments are available, that’s why in this year’s budget we have money set aside for repairing and maintenance of facilities and also some of the equipments to try to make sure the medicines are in place when people need it, so those are some of the major things we are trying to do this year.”
Usamate adds better facilities will be developed at the Nausori Health Centre to address the needs of the people of Nausori.
