Priority for Dominica - Strengthening Health Infrastructure with Citizenship by Investment Funds/
Twelve new health centers will be built as part of a project to strengthen health care and provide better quality services to citizens. The government has invested US$2 million in a project to be completed soon (Bagatelle Medical Center). All this money was taken from the Citizenship by Investment program.
Prime Minister Dr the Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit emphasized the drive to expand healthcare on the island: “This can also be translated into better care for our citizens and residents. There will be no complaints about the quality of services or the quality of equipment. I am happy about this investment here, and we will have a series of openings for such facilities in Dominica in just a few weeks."
“In addition to the commissioning of several new medical centers, Dominica is also in the process of building a modern hospital, scheduled for completion in April 2021, which is also funded by the CBI program. The program previously sponsored the refurbishment of several hospitals and health facilities following the 2017 hurricane and supported treatment abroad for 16 children." - writes prnewswire.
The past year has highlighted the need for a robust healthcare system (despite the fact that Dominica is considered the country least affected by the virus).
