The state of health services

The United Front for a Democratic Fiji has called for the resignation of the Health minister, Dr Neil Sharma. Drugs spoiling while sitting in stocks, shoddy supplies from China and India, and a shortage of anaesthetists were some of the problems they cited. These are not news to people who rely on government health services, which doesn’t include Bainimarama or Khaiyum who go overseas for treatment. A blogger on Coup 4.5 quoted an example raised in the Naitasiri Provincial Council of a medical emergency in Nabobuco where the Ambulance in Vunidawa was not allowed to go to attend an injured man who died as a result. The doctor gave pathetic excuses about rain, damage to the ambulance, only one driver etc but also admitted the he feared the Health Dept would surcharge them for Ambulance use.
