An awareness and testing programme for Type 2 diabetes will commence in Port Vila today.

Up to 10,000 free diabetes tests will be offered to the community during the programme period. The following four sites in central Port Vila have been designated to conduct free testing: ProMedical (Freshwota), Au Bon Marche Manples, Finance Building (near the Market) and Port Vila Hardware (Nambatu).

The general public are encouraged to fully utlise the free testing program.

The programme is the result of a collaboration between the Port Vila and Santo Rotary Clubs, Marine Reach and the Ministries of Health and Education.
