With New Zealand now having confirmed cases of Coronavirus and other parts of the world seeing more cases confirmed, health officials are urging people to practise good hygiene to lower their chances of getting sick.
The World Health Organistaion emphasises the importance of listening to credible news sources and not to stigmatise people by race associated with the virus.
At this time most people in the Pacific have very little immediate risk of exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19. However, some people are worried about the disease.
Samoan creative artist and dancer Ufitia Sagapolutele was part of this campaign for MinihealthNZ highlighting how important it is to get your cervix checked. Most cervical cancer can be prevented with regular screening so don’t ignore your cervix, and get it checked 🌸

Its crunchy, salty and spicy – what’s not to like about sea grapes from Samoa, Fiji and Kiribati?
This delicacy in the Pacific Islands is a type of seaweed known as “Caulerpa” and has different common names in different places.
In Samoa, it is called ‘limu fuafua’, in Fiji it is called nama” and in Kiribati it is called “kureeben taari”. One thing that they all agree on is that seaweed is an important part of their culinary heritage that is crucial to preserve in these times of environmental change.
Jope’s experience of growing up in a household facing domestic violence sparked an interest in gender and politics. His academic research is driven by first hand knowledge of how these social structures affect people’s lives every day.
His experience led him to rethink what it means to be a Fijian man in today’s society and to question the role and power that he has as a man in Fiji. ￼￼￼Jope’s talk invites us all to re-think the Fijian man. Jope Tarai is a research student and teaching assistant at the University of the South Pacific (USP) who spent his early years growing up in the interior parts of Fiji before moving to Suva.
He is dedicated to research in areas of diplomacy, Pacific politics, youth development, social media and gender where he challenges the traditional structure and asks people to question the status quo. Jope attended Assemblies of God Primary School (A.O.G) and Stella Maris before moving to Marist Brothers High School (MBHS) before completing his tertiary studies at the University of the South Pacific (USP).
