Quotes

"In the Solomon Islands, once the current malaria outbreak has been dealt with, we hope to resume our planned midwifery conference which we support biennially and the training in the area of emergency obstetric and neo-natal assessments."
"The recent meeting was very satisfying because there has been a radical change in the positions of many countries, particularly the US, and they are coming on very strong and with the US taking that position, it is very possible that the rest will follow, perhaps even China" President Tong said at a press conference in Suva on Wednesday. "But that is not enough."
"Whoever has been diagnosed with TB should continue the treatment. Whoever has symptoms should go check the health facilities and then there's treatment available. If you don't take treatment then you spread the disease, then you die with the disease. It's a curable disease, the drugs are available. People should be aware of this and they should be responsible."
"We've talked to every government, not to any particular government, at the international level and we have always made this point and I must say that up to now, there's been only one government, one country that has offered a very positive response" Kiribati President Anote Tong says
