Fiji : Ministry to focus on health matters

Via The Fiji Times :

" THE Ministry for Social Welfare, Women and Poverty Alleviation will address the issue of the welfare of women during natural disasters.

This follows the report that four of the seven deaths during the recent flood were women who died of leptospirosis.

Presenting at the 56th session of United Nations Commission on Status of Women, Minister for Women Dr Jiko Luveni said that the health and safety of women needed to be addressed as most women were represented in disaster management committees."
