The nationwide registration for the free medicine programme will start from today.

Pharmacy intern at Colonial War Memorial Hospital (CWM), Zafiya Shagufta, said: “People are now collecting the forms from the receptionist but the number of response is less just because of less awareness by the ministry.”

Josefa Kolinibaravii, 29, a patient at the hospital said the free medicine programme was gift from Government and it would help poor and needy people.

“I thank Government for such a great start,” Mr Kolinibaravi said.

Free registration forms are available at all health centres. Those eligible will need to present several official documents including:

– an original certified birth certificate,

– evidence of annual salary less than $20,000 or statutory declaration statement,

– certified marriage certificate,

– Fiji National Provident Fund or electronic voter registration card for registration.
