New mobile health clinic for the Cook Islands

From , 5:02 am on 25 June 2018

From next week Rarotonga in the Cook Islands will have a new mobile health clinic servicing the island's [13,000] thirteen thousand people.

Kaveinga Ora will replace the island's 27 village medical centres with a refurbished bus thanks largely to the efforts of Rotary clubs in New Zealand, the Cook Islands and beyond.

The project has been two years in the making and on Monday begins commissioned service.

Dominic Godfrey's been speaking to some of those involved.
