Ninety-six new doctors have been assigned roles in various medical centres across Fiji.

This will boost the Ministry of Health’s service delivery.

The 60 female and 36 male doctors, who completed their internships last year are going through their induction and orientation at the Pearl Resort, Deuba.

Minister for Health and Medical Services Dr Ifereimi Waqainabete reminded the young doctors on how measles had stretched Fiji’s health system.

“One thing is clear with the approach we did to measles is that it was based on the best practice and we had very good minds that formed the operational heart of the health team,” he said.

Dr Waqainabete said it was a team effort and everyone in the Ministry of Health had a part to play which led to a successful measles campaign. He said after the two cyclones; the Ministry of Health teams had made successful trips to the Lau Group, Kadavu and Vanua Levu.

There was also a powerful message about service and the oath taken by the doctors. Dr Waqainabete said it was the doctors who had taken the oath.
