Diabetes Fiji has commended Government’s effort to decrease the VAT on imported fruits and vegetables

Fiji National University’s Surgical Professor Eddie McCaig says this initiative will enable Fijians to have access to quality fruits and vegetables.

Dr McCaig also says that there is a need to have a diabetes department in Fiji to deal with diabetics.

“The suggestion is that we should have a diabetes department in this country with endocrinologists as we don’t have them in Fiji, we have general physicians who deal with diabetes management”

Meanwhile, Dr McCaig says there is a need to raise awareness as this is a fight that no one can fight alone and we all need to work together to overcome this deadly disease.
