Dominica Joins the rest of the world today Thursday April 7, in observance of World Health Day under the theme ‘Our Planet, Our Health’.
This year’s theme focuses global attention on urgent actions needed to keep humans and the planet healthy, and foster a movement to create societies focused on well-being.
Minister for Health, Wellness & New Health investment Dr. Irving McIntyre says while the World Health Organization (WHO) calls for legislation to break the cycles of destruction of the planet and human health, the Government of Dominica, has developed and continues to develop policy decisions and strategies to be geared at improving the health of the its people.
Dr. McIntyre went on to note, while the Government of Dominica plays its role in the reduction of pollution and impacts on climate change, every individual has a significant role to play.
