A team of medical specialists from the United States completed their survey yesterday at Vava’u focusing on people with non-communicable disease – NCDs.

The town officer of Neiafu Vava’u – Vavaa Lapota says 4 medical specialists from the United States arranged a survey for the communities in Vava’u focusing mainly on people with diabetes.

He adds the team carried out awareness programs on ways to address the issue.

The medical team also strongly recommended the people to eat local food especially fruits and vegetables.

The “Amanaki Lelei” team has visited Tongatapu many times but was their first time to carry out a similar program in Vava’u.

The team will return to Vava’u again in June to follow-up on their operations.
