Investment in infrastructure will allow the Ministry of Health to focus on improving human skills
Close to $30 million has been set aside to improve facilities at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital (CWMH) in Suva.
This is part of Government’s plan to upgrade infrastructure and enhance human resources.
The Minister for Health, Dr Neil Sharma, said the East Wing (CWM) was undergoing some modifications with plans to include 200 beds at the maternity units, delivery suites and operating theatres that would be commissioned this year.
“Our focus is nationwide with nursing stations, health centres, sub -divisional hospitals receiving facelift,” Dr Sharma said.
He said the ministry had plans to reduce wastage and practice better procurement methods in the pharmaceutical areas.
“This is a complex issue with the global market changing, population movement in country, transportation in/out of countries and changing patterns of prescribing,” Dr Sharma said.
“Our efficiency levels are more robust, wastage markedly reduced and better procurement, storage and distribution are in place.”
The minister is confident that government investment in infrastructure will allow the ministry to focus on improving human skills, customer focus and ownership of new services and technology.
