Twelve Taiwan medical teams consisting of 80 medical staff have been visiting Fiji since 2014 and have to date examined 6,000 patients and more than 600 students in Fiji.

The in‑coming mobile medical team is from Cathay General Hospital, a prestigious private hospital famous for its completion of more than 12,500 cardiology surgeries and enjoys a remarkable 98.5% success rate since 1990.

The visit of Taiwan’s medical teams has been made possible with the kind assistance of the various Ministries and the support of the Fijian people.
