There has been a call for the Government to provide reasonable medical facilities for women on Rabi Island, off Vanua Levu.
The call has come from a group of women who made a submission to the Constitution Commission.
Social worker Terikano Takesau said the island has a health centre, a doctor and a nurse, yet the women were told to travel to the mainland hospitals to deliver their babies.
She said women needed to have $100 to travel to the Savusavu Hospital to seek medical help.
