Fund Raising Goal
FijiLIFE Foundation Limited, an Australian Charity Registered with the ACNC, is looking to form a Memorandum of Understanding with the Fijian Government Ministry of Health & Medical Services (MHMS) to deliver one 40 Ft Container of Gifted Used Medical, Hospital, and Educational Equipment and Supplies from Rotary Donations In Kind Adelaide to Suva for use in the Ministry’s Nursing Stations, Health Centres, Staff Quarters, and Hospitals in Fiji.
Overview of MHMS Strategy
The Fijian Government’s Ministry of Health and Medical Services (MHMS) is responsible for managing Fiji’s overall health care system.
Their Strategic Intent states,
“We aim to provide a one-system approach to the three core Strategic Priorities. We want to achieve universal health coverage (UHC) by providing the quality health care necessary for good health. Through an integrated approach to public health and by strengthening the continuum of care for patients, we will improve the health and well-being of all Fijians and combat the social determinants that affect people’s lives, especially the lives of the most vulnerable and marginalised.”
FijiLIFE Foundation Limited’s MHMS project supports the Ministry of Health and Medical Service’s Strategic Plan 2020-2025.
Hon. Dr. Ifereimi Waqainabete
Minister for Health and Medical Services
“I present to you the Ministry’s Strategic Plan 2020-2025, that outlines our new strategic priorities and sets the direction for the Ministry for the next 5 years. It reflects the higher level of determination and drive that I had envisioned. It clearly demonstrates our pathway to achieving Universal Health Coverage by ensuring that we reach the unreachable. I would like to ensure that every individual in this nation has equitable and accessible health services and no one is left behind.
The plan is closely aligned to the National Development Plan (NDP) that emphasises inclusive socio-economic development to improve the social well-being of all Fijians, with no one being left behind. The NDP vision of a high quality health system, where medical services are raised to international standards is also reflected in this Strategic Plan.
The development of this new Strategic Plan has provided us the opportunity to formulate strategies to re-orient services, with a greater focus on providing services closer to people’s homes and improving services for our young population. This Strategic Plan , therefore, has a more in-depth focus on the delivery of services with clear outcomes outlined for decentralisation of services. The decentralisation of specific services to divisions will assist us in achieving our aim of reduction in complications, as our people will be able to access services more efficiently.
We will prioritise strengthening current services by ensuring better linkage between clinical and preventive services. We also aim to improve our efficiency by early action, and therefore reduce serious cases seen at hospitals. Our aim is to improve the overall service experience of our patients. We will do this by providing clinical services in a standardised manner across the country.
Overall, we are seeking ways to expand the availability of care in communities, and innovative ways of doing this for people living in hard-to-reach locations.
We will strengthen the collaborative approach between stakeholders to better use resources and information in order to build a more resilient health system. In the event of a disaster, we will continue to enhance disaster preparedness and management, including making sure Fiji’s Emergency Medical Assistance Team (FEMAT) is ready for deployment.
I take this opprtunity to thank all our partners and stakeholders for supporting us over the years and look forward to working together in implementing this plan. I also thank all the staff and encourage us to continue to put in greater care, compassion and commitment into our work to achieve the outcomes in this plan.”
