NHF RESPONDS TO SUNDAY GLEANER ARTICLE: “NHF Board Moves - Director's Interest In Jamaica Moves Kept Secret From Funding Agency; Quits Body A Week Before Contract Inked.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

KINGSTON, Jamaica … July 27, 2020 – The NHF wishes to point out that the responses to the Gleaner on Friday July 24, 2020, regarding questions about Jamaica Moves and a former director of the National Health Fund (NHF) Board of Management, Ms Lyndsey McDonnough, did not state nor imply that NHF Board Members were unaware that Ms McDonough was co-owner of Market Me Consultants Limited. In fact all Government of Jamaica appointed board members are required to declare their interest at the start of the term. Therefore Ms McDonnough co-ownership was known.

The NHF also reiterates that the Ministry of Health and Wellness (MoH&W) was responsible for the procurement of the contract for Jamaica Moves and that the NHF did not control the procurement process, nor sign a contract with the marketing consultants.
