Dominica to receive aid from PAHO with health insurance plan

Roseau, Mar 2 (Prensa Latina) Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has revealed that Dominica is receiving the assistance of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) in finding a replacement for the Trinidadian national.

Speaking on the subject, the prime minister made known that since this time, efforts have been made to recruit a new CEO, with the assistance of the United Nations organization which is in charge of international health cooperation in the Americas.

Skerrit also highlighted that the organization has also assisted by way of providing Dominica with several experts who will assist in ensuring that the country can have the equipment and the structures needed to provide optimal care to residents.

“They were here about a week and a half ago meeting with the minister of health and the hospital authority to discuss the approach and the plan, “ he said. “And I believe coming out of that, the hospital will be in a much better position to provide the kind of care that all of us would like to provide to our citizens.”

The prime minister also informed the media that, as in the past, his administration will continue to work with PAHO on the national health insurance scheme pilot programme.

Skerrit asserts that several people have already benefited from the program’s two components.

The prime minister added that his government has also decided to abolish the income tax criteria for those who have health insurance to give them a better opportunity to obtain health insurance as an additional means of support.
