The committee set up by government to advise on the development of the health care system in this country, will present its report to the cabinet today.

Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley, in an address to the nation last evening, noted that this process had been well underway, hinting at government’s commitment to bettering the sector.

The healthcare sector has, for years, been the cause of great concern to the general population. In the past, numerous issues have plagued the sector, among them, bed shortages, equipment failure and most recently, an inadequate supply of drugs for chronically ill patients as a result of international distribution challenges.
