The Government has recoginsed the shortage of medical professionals in Fiji over the last two years.

Minister for Health and Medical Services Jone Usamate said : “This is why over the past two years we have kept on increasing the number of doctors and nurses.

“To some extent, we had limited the number of nurses and doctors coming in to the system from the universities.

“The Government has recoginsed them and this year we will introduce new doctors and nurses.”

Mr Usamate said the ministry over the last past two years had created more positions to create employment opportunities and at the same time they were looking at their structure to keep doctors they already have.
