    World Scabies Program at the 2023 Fiji Showcase

    The 2023 Fiji Showcase is the largest trade and entertainment event showcasing government and non-government organizations and local businesses in Fiji. This event strengthens partnerships between private and government sectors and showcases each area of expertise to the public. The World Scabies Program partnered with Communication Fiji Ltd (CFL) to hold a neglected tropical disease (NTD) stall at the event.

    It was great timing for WSP as the program had just completed mass drug administration (MDA) nationwide. This platform provided an opportunity for attendees to learn about scabies MDA as well as receive medication. MDA coverage attained during Fiji Showcase 2023 was well over 500 people in the Central Division.
