Aspen Medical and the Fiji Cancer Society (FCS) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) emphasising a collaborative, multidisciplinary team approach that prioritises the needs of cancer patients and their families. This collaboration will involve sharing resources and expertise with the goal of improving cure rates for treatable cancers.

Aspen Medical's CEO in Fiji Gavin Whiteside said, "This MOU is designed to improve psychosocial support for individuals and families grappling with cancer. It aims to facilitate healthy coping mechanisms and attain an optimal quality of life.

"The partnership is poised to foster increased cooperation between Aspen Medical and the Fiji Cancer Society. The focus will be on community education, emphasising improved lifestyle choices and health-seeking behaviour."

The alarming incidence of cervical cancer in 2019, with a rate of 66 per 100,000 and a distressingly high mortality rate, underscores the urgency of the situation, particularly with Fijian women presenting at an advanced stage.
