$120m donated by partners and agencies to MOHMS in budget support

DEAR EDITOR, according to information on donor funding to the Solomon Islands Ministry of Health and Medical Services quoted by veteran journalist Alfred Sasako, writing in Thursday’s edition of the Island Sun this week, some S120 million has been included in the SI new development budget in support of the MOHMS.

Mr Sasako said the budget support had come from several countries and sources including, Australian Budget support, the European Union (EU), the Global Fund, the United Nations (UN), UNICEF, the Healthy Lifestyle Promotion Fund, The Fred Hollows Foundation, Australia, KOIKA, the Family Planning, Australia and from the Republic of China (on Taiwan).

As an ardent advocate for the SI MOHMS and for the rights of all people in the Solomon Islands to proper health care and facilities, I greatly welcome the generous donor support reportedly contributed by so many partner countries and international agencies and, in my small way, I thank all for the donations specifically designated to aid local medical services.

Yours sincerely
