The dedication of Rarotonga’s new mobile health clinic bus took place at Constitution Park yesterday morning, attended by distinguished guests from both here in the Cook Islands and from New Zealand, including health minister Nandi Glassie and New Zealand High Commissioner Peter Marshall.

Also present were former New Zealand High Commissioner Nick Hurley and his wife Christine.

The dedication ceremony marked the end of a long journey to get the health bus to the Cook Islands since members of the Masterton South Rotary Club in New Zealand first came up with the idea to outfit a bus as a mobile health clinic.
