The Fiji Oral Health Workers Association (FOHWA) was honoured with the opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the Speaker of Parliament Dr Jiko Luveni during their 26th Annual Meeting, Scientific Conference and Excellence Service Awards that ended on Saturday.

Dr Luveni was the chief guest and guest of honour during the event.

She was recently awarded the Honorary Fellowship Award from the Council of the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons (RACDS).

“It gives us pride to celebrate the significance of the awarding of an Honorary Fellowship to Madame Speaker Dr Luveni,” said the Association General Secretary Vinod Kumar.

Association Senior Executive Mr Penioni Ravunawa said: “Madame Speaker Dr Luveni’s service to dentistry was exemplary and her dedication to serving women, children and other disadvantaged groups who have high oral inequality and high oral health needs, her contributions to Public Health Dentistry in the Pacific, working with HIV/AIDS in the Pacific, supporting the growth and education of girls and women are some of her legacies.

“It’s pleasant to hear that Dr Luveni pledged to further raise awareness of oral health needs in the Pacific and help in the further understanding that oral health is a basic human right.”

The meeting was attended by over 140 local Dental Practitioners and some from the region.

Meanwhile, the association also held its annual service excellence awards to recognize and reward the high achieving dental practitioners in the last 12 months.
