To Medical and Dental Professionals, Clinicians, General Surgeons, Nurses, Opticians, Para-Medical and General Volunteers registration for 2020 Sai MediCare Camp – Vanua Levu, Fiji is now open.
The Australian Sai Medical Unit in collaboration with the SSIO in New Zealand and Fiji has been conducting free medical camps in various areas of Fiji for many years. The camps provide health-care services at a number of levels to many of the local communities, many of whose people are unable for various reasons to readily access health care. More details of the last service can be found HERE.
Attendance by health-care professionals and general volunteers has been increasingly popular, however, numbers that can be accommodated are limited, so please, if interested attend to the registration information carefully.
