The Home Finance Company (HFC) Bank yesterday handed over a sponsorship cheque to the Fiji College of General Practitioners (FCGP).

The sponsorship cheque would cater for the upcoming conference which is an annual function which has been a historical event since its establishment in 1993.

The College also holds an awards night for its members which is attended by our local and overseas General Practitioners and stakeholders.

Dr. Shanita Sen, FCGP Conference Committee Chairperson said: “We are thankful to Fiji’s only locally owned bank, HFC bank, for supporting the 2018 FCGP Annual Conference and its theme, Building a better tomorrow for our women and children.”

49 per cent of Fiji’s population are women therefore, by becoming an equal opportunity provider, respective organisations such as HFC Bank have witnessed more women getting into leadership positions, entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship, education, health innovation, science and many more.

“While unleashing their potential, we enable women and girls to actively transform our world, unfortunately, most dreams and potential are often thwarted by discrimination, violence and lack of equal opportunities, she said.

“There are glaring gaps in data and knowledge about the specific needs and challenges that women face in Fiji.

“Therefore, to increase awareness among FCGP members and to aid medical interventions geared towards women and children in our modern medical practice, sponsorships from leading organisations such as HFC Bank play an integral part that goes a long way in how we help mold our tomorrow.”

Dr. Sen added: “HFC bank sponsorship is an indication that they are with FCGP not only in looking after the health of our women and children but in building, nurturing, and inspiring collaboration among a community of leaders – bringing women, men, emerging leaders, academic institutions, networks, companies, and other institutions together, that share our mission and purpose during this conference”.

The Fiji College of General Practitioners (FCGP) is the professional representative of private sector primary‐health care providers in Fiji.
