Working with the community and local nurses in Fiji, assist in collecting data about the various obstacles facing its members, while running local public health workshops in the region.
GVI’s programs in the region aim to promote health and all-round wellbeing in these communities. Dawasamu public health volunteers work closely with local community health workers.
There are also monthly visits between GVI Public Health Volunteers and the District Nurse to assess the success of the work being done. Volunteers may also utilise official government health materials and resources to create interactive workshops in collaboration with recognised local authorities. Furthermore, volunteers assist by creating supporting resources, and conducting supplementary research to assist the district nurse to collate information about individual villages, particularly with a focus to assist in diagnosis of problem areas, and monitoring recurring ailments.
