Fiji is made up of an archipelago of more than 300 islands in the South Pacific and is known for its friendly people and tropical climate and beaches. A great number of tourists visit Fiji each year and many expatriates reside there as well. Since the UK granted Fiji independence in 1970, the country has unfortunately experienced racial and political problems and is still struggling towards democracy. The capital is Suva.
Healthcare in Fiji
Fiji’s health care system has continually faltered because of a shortage of healthcare workers, funding and lack of control. However, the government and NGOs have made significant progress in providing primary care to Fijians that has helped reduce sickness and diseases. For any serious medical claims, most expats will want to seek medical treatment abroad. Medical evacuation coverage is a necessity.
