..."I welcome this opportunity to address you on this very significant occasion in the lives of the citizens of this region. The Government is today very pleased to bring improved primary health care services to this part of the country through the Siparia District Health Facility.
Let me congratulate all those responsible for bringing us to this point. This includes the Ministry of Health, the South-West Regional Health Authority and the contractors engaged in the provision of the facility.
This is the third and final facility of its type to be completed in this Central/South region under the District Health Facility concept. The other two already in service to the people are in Couva and Princes Town.
This new facility clearly represents a vast improvement on services previously provided."...
