The Ministry of Health and the Environment headquarters, housed on the first floor of the Ministerial Building, is the executive arm of the Government of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines responsible for pursuing all official national health policies.

The Ministry has a Minister of Health and the Environment as the political directorate, while the administrative leader is the Permanent Secretary and the Chief Medical Officer as the technical head. The administrative and technical leaders are guided by the rules and regulations of the Public Service.

The Government, through this Ministry, concurs with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) definition of Health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity.
