Fighting NCD’s

In Fiji, one of the major risks to our population is the rising crisis of non-communicable diseases (NCD’s). In recent decades, NCD’s have become the biggest killer in Fiji, causing thousands of deaths every year – many of those deaths premature – and affecting the lives of many more. Around 80% of deaths in Fiji are caused by an NCD and those numbers are growing.

“Participating in sporting activities like the 2016 Island Chill Suva Marathon keeps you away from Non- Communicable Diseases, and Island Chill and MHh is committed to healthier Fiji.” said Villay.

“As Fiji’s premium water supplier, we are proud to promote a healthly lifestyle by supporting community events like the Island Chill Suva Marathon.” he continued.

Investing in your health as early as possible is the key to avoiding NCDs., and that means:

  • Eating a healthy diet of fresh and natural foods
  • Exercising daily, at least 30 – 60 minutes of moderate – vigorous exercise
  • No Smoking
  • Moderate your alcohol intake.

The Ministry of Health supports the 2016 Island Chill Marathon and is always promoting the concept of Wellness to the Fijian people in the belief that prevention is better than a cure.
