De La Haye Welcomes ‘EPOC Type’ Oversight

Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Winston De La Haye, is welcoming a suggestion to have a monitoring body for the health sector akin to the Economic Programme Oversight Committee.

The suggestion was put forward by Chairman of the National Health Fund, Chris Zacca.

He was speaking at a recent panel discussion on challenges facing the health sector.

However, Mr. De La Haye says this will not solve the chronic under-funding of the health sector, which he says remains a serious concern.
