The people of the Nadroga highlands, especially those living in Keiyasi and Navutimali will soon have improved health facilities instead of travelling for hours to get medical assistance at urban centres.

Keiyasi Health Centre board of visitors chairman, Mesake Biumaiwai, said the upgrade would help people in the area.

“The common problem we find over here is travelling. It is very expensive to travel to town since most of us are just farmers and we don’t earn much,” Mr Biumaiwai said.

The divisional medical officer Western, Dr Susana Nakalevu said the upgrade was to enable people to access better service.

“At the moment this is still a health centre. The ministry and the Government are planning to have it as a sub-divisional hospital.

“Just seeing the road condition and the distance that they have to travel will mean that this project will be very helpful to the people,” Dr Nakalevu said.

The Keiyasi Health Centre contains 10 beds.

“We are grateful that the Government has allocated approximately $2million for the project on the hospital and we hope to start work early next year,” she said.
