The Pierre Administration has secured € 14 million in health resilience funding from the European Investment Bank (EIB).
EIB Vice President Ricardo M. Felix together with Prime Minister Hon. Philip J. Pierre signed the multimillion dollar Agreement on October 10, 2022.
The money will be invested in the island’s health sector to strengthen capacity, build resilience and ready Saint Lucia for impending health related emergencies.

Much gratitude from St Lucians, I hope the people do see a return on this magnaimous gift. 🇱🇨🙏🏽
Oh boy,some politicians & contractors are about to get richer,let’s see who building the next mansion or buying a home overseas or bringing in the next BIG SHOT vehicle…The Circus continues!!!
All these can be good initiatives but majority of these investment or initiatives, we do not see the rewards and these do not reach the people who are struggling. It always benefits the upper class. Administration after administration keep investing in the same things no wonder we keep moving at a sluggish rate.
I applaud the generosity of the givers. Given the history of present and past administrations’ following up after receiving donations I ask that my fellow St.lucians watch closely at the returns in the sector at hand (health) and hold them accountable for lack of action respectively. Godspeed Saint Lucia.
I hope St Lucia gets the facilities and proper professional health care that’s is so urgently needed, including mental health care. Let us hope this time the people win!
