Health Department officials are ready to do a nutrition survey in the Western Division.

A national nutrition survey workshop at the Ministry of Fisheries and Forest office in Lautoka was officially closed by the Minister for Health and Medical Services, Jone Usamate, yesterday.

Mr Usamate urged the workshop participants to use all that they learned from the workshop.

“I have been going around health centres and hospitals and I know we haven’t got the best working places but we can at least try and make it the best.

“As you conduct this survey try and get as much data as you possibly can just like what you have learned at the workshop,” he said.

Consultant nutritionist Jimaima Schultz said she was very happy with the response from the workshop participants.

“The workshop went really well. The teams visited houses around the Lautoka area for practical and they just came with positive attitudes and they all look forward to begin next week,” she said.

Ms Schultz said the information the participants gathered showed a worsening situation.

“So far results that we have gathered, non- communicable diseases are deteriorating,” she said.

The 30 participants will begin their survey from Monday next week and will be concluding on the fourth week.
