Fiji's NFP proposes health reforms

From , 5:04 am on 8 June 2017

Fiji's National Federation Party says if it gets into power after the next election it will bring in major reforms to the health and medical system.

The party, which is one of two opposition parties in Fiji's parliament, revealed more of its manifesto at its party convention at the weekend.

The leader Biman Prasad says the NFP would nearly double the minimum wage to $US2.40 an hour, more than double the number of basic food items which aren't subject to tax and establish a National Health Service to streamline the health system.

Professor Prasad told Sally Round the party's done its homework.
