As we look forward to World Health Day, Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka says a day exercise shouldn't be restricted by age, it should be part of our lifestyle and we should all continue to stay fit and contribute to a healthier family, community and nation.

Rabuka says that he is grateful that he can still lift weights, do push-ups and run on the treadmill even though he is 75 years old.

He says he has started with his cardio workout and some basic exercises and his goal is to walk 6,000 steps every day, and he is happy that it's achievable.

World Health Day will be celebrated this Sunday, while World Autism Day is celebrated today.

He says that autism is a condition that affects millions of people around the world as it also presents challenges and obstacles that bring unique strengths and perspectives.

Rabuka says by understanding and celebrating these differences, we can create a more inclusive and compassionate society.

The Prime Minister urges all Fijians to be kind, accept each other, and show love for all families by actively making healthier food choices.
