The Ministry of Health is fully committed to the Primary Health Care Approach and subscribes fully to the core values of ethics, equity and solidarity. In that regard, access to health is viewed as a fundamental human right and in achieving health for all we believe in promoting partnerships and cooperation and ethical conduct in health service provision. By embracing these core values, we aim to ensure that all persons regardless of their socio-economic situation have access to an essential package of quality services.

At the end of Fiscal Year 2008, we hope to record achievements in the following areas:
•™Improving and sustaining the health gains and well-being of all residents of Montserrat
•Achieving greater equity, cost effectiveness and efficiency in the allocation and use of health resources
•Further developing a cadre of well trained and motivated staff
•Further developing an effective health information system to support evidence based decision making
•Ensuring an effective quality improvement system capable of monitoring standards and achieving stakeholder accountability
•Improving health infrastructure
