Trinidad and Tobago signs health pact with SVG


A giant step to the benefit of Vincentian health care was taken recently, as Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves and Trinidadian Prime Minister Patrick Manning signed a three-year health agreement.{{more}}

The agreement paves the way for Vincentians to access emergency health care in the twin island state.

Dr Gonsalves explained that since his administration took the reins of power in 2001, the Government has arranged for about 30 Vincentians to go to Trinidad and Tobago for medical attention.

He, however, explained that he expressed to Prime Minister Manning, during his two-day visit, that the arrangement that is already practiced should be packaged within an official memorandum, so that it could remain in place, even if either of them is to suddenly drop off the scene. (KJ)
