“This event is important as our exchanges will benefit from the experiences and shared knowledge about challenges, reforms on the way and innovations.

This event supports a regional Caribbean dialogue to spark regional collaboration and knowledge transfer. Our successes and challenges in the areas of non-communicable diseases, hospital services and health management information systems will be shared.

These topics have been prioritized to support investment decisions and policy reforms in the broader Caribbean countries that are embarking on health system reforms.”

The Korean World Bank Partnership Facility has, over the last few months, financed technical assistance to support reform initiatives.

Minister Jn Baptiste said: “Universal health care is an ambitious goal. It provides avenue for unity, global health financing against poverty and reducing social inequity. It is the hallmark of government’s commitment to improving the well-being of all citizens.”.

While in Saint Lucia, the delegates visited the Owen King EU Hospital and Saint Lucia’s performance-based financing facility.
