National Health Fund Launches Community  Workday Programme

The Minister of Health, Dr Fenton Ferguson, will launch a new initiative by the National Health Fund- the NHF Community Workday Programme. The launch will beat the Port Maria Hospital, St. Mary, on Saturday June 8 at 10 a.m. The hospital will benefit from a facelift of painting and partitioning to the Harry and Martin Wards to create a more comfortable surrounding for the patients.

The NHF Community Workday programme facilitates one project in each parish at a cost of no more than one million dollars. It covers needy and urgent repairs to the facility’s infrastructure and replacement or fixing of equipment. The work is to be carried out by voluntary skilled and unskilled workers in the parish.

NHF’s CEO, Mr. Everton Anderson, says he is looking for vibrant community participation. “I am looking forward to seeing the members of that community come together to help improve facilities which they may all use one day,” he stated.

Mr. Anderson said that the project is part of the mandate given to the NHF to help improve health care to the people of Jamaica. He said that while major refurbishing will be undertaken at the hospitals islandwide through the NHF’s institutional Benefits Programme, there is a great need for minor repair projects to be undertaken to help reduce the deterioration of facilities.

He noted that cooperation at the community level is very helpful in keeping the members of the community together while at the same time it will help build the relationship between the NHF and the community.
