MINISTER WAQAINABETE LAUNCHES NATIONWIDE PINKTOBER INITIATIVE

“Your resilience is a pattern to us all and your victory will now become a footprint to countless others who will walk that battlefield in the future.”

Minister for Health and Medical Services, Hon. Dr Ifereimi Waqainabete said this while commending the strength and determination of the cancer survivors during the launch of Tanoa Hotel Group PINKTOBER initiative this evening.

“In Fiji, Breast Cancer stands at 300 per year and is followed by Cervical Cancer with less than 200 per year as the most common cancers,” Dr. Waqainabete said.

Minister Waqainabete said there has been a steady rise in the cases due to greater awareness which enables people to come forward for check-ups.
