Efforts to improve the delivery of health care services here received a major boost on Monday 20th March with the handing over of four new ambulances to the Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment.


The ambulances, valued at some $500,000.00 were donated by the Government of Taiwan as part of its ongoing bilateral relations with this country.



In accepting the donation, Hon. Luke Browne, Health Minister, said that the ambulances will be placed strategically to ensure maximum benefits to the people of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

Minister Browne said that they would be placed in Stubbs, Sandy Bay, Chateaubelair and Georgetown.

He added that the ambulances would be dispatched with a driver, male attendant, a registered nurse and a doctor depending on the nature of the call.

The Minister also said that efforts are also being made to improve the capacity of emergency response personnel.
