New clinic opens for Matavai Maloloina Village

Members of the community in Matavai Maloloina Village in Savaii can now receive basic health care assistance at their new clinic.

The clinic was officially handed over to the community by Australia’s Deputy High Commissioner to Samoa, Amanda Jewell last week.

The clinic will provide first aid, over the counter medication and basic health assistance for minor injuries for people living in the area.

It will also be a base for any visiting medical teams to conduct Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) screenings and other health services.

The building was partially funded by Australia through its Direct Aid Program which provided WST $21,137.33 for the purchase of building materials.

The project was designed to complement the Ministry of Health's existing programs to improve primary healthcare in villages and communities.
