President Ratu Epeli Nailatikau welcomes Pacific representatives for the Pacific Society for Reproductive Health (PSRH) Conference in Suva yesterday.

The Pacific Representatives for the Pacific Society for Reproductive Health (PSRH) Conference in Suva is important in improving women’s health issues in the Pacific.

The President, Ratu Epeli Nailatikau made this comment while addressing more than 400 representatives from around the Pacific including New Zealand and Australia in the six-day conference.

It started on Sunday at the University of the South Pacific Laucala Campus in Suva.

“You have for instance brought together nurses, doctors, midwives, obstetricians and gynecologists from most of the Pacific island countries as well as from Australia and New Zealand,” Ratu Epeli said.

“It is particularly pleasing that you are using your networks for professional development of your members, linking scientific research and theories with clinical practices and experiences. This in turn contributes to the significant improvement of issues like women’s health.”

The participants had been attending sessions that covered family planning, emergencies in obstetrics, neonatology, ultrasound avoiding surgical complications and research.

“I am glad to know that you are tackling important areas or promoting family life. The integrity of the family is vital. This subject must be pursued with vigour.

“I note that you are also discussing team building in clinical practice.

“This underscores the need for all of you to work together and bring in your different level of experiences, build on your strength and help each other.

“Together you can look after all those who depend on you for their health care,” he said.

Ratu Epeli also commended the participants on the launching of a Pacific Emergency Material and Neonatal Training Manual and a PSRH Journal.
