Engaging the Fiji Sevens team to be champions of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) prevention is something the Ministry for Health will look into.

Minister for Health and Medical Services Rosy Akbar said the sevens players were not engaged yet.

Ms Akbar referred to a question raised by Leader of Opposition Ro Teimumu Kepa, who asked what the minister’s plans were for building on and transferring the sevens team champion status from the sports field to enhancing NCD prevention.

She said, however, at the end of the day it was all about the choices of the people and their lifestyle.

She said it was something every Fijian knew, but people would rather draw their inspiration from someone else to tell them want to do.
