PRESS RELEASE – Doctors from Victoria, St. Jude and Tapion Hospitals met in the Conference room of the Ministry of Health, Wellness, Human Services and Gender Affairs to discuss preparatory plans for dealing with a possible Ebola Case.
Dr. Alisha Eugene, Health Disaster Coordinator stated that the meeting was very successful. “There we were discussing preparations, what we’re actually doing for Ebola and in addition to the preparation we’re talking about our gaps or our limitations.
“Very importantly is at the end of it what we want to achieve is to know as a country our health facilities how prepared we are and we can help each other in giving ideas as to what we should do or what we should not do to allow us to get to the point where we are prepared as much as we can be prepared just in case we have an Ebola case here in St. Lucia.”
As protocols change within the international community with regard to Ebola management, care and treatment, the Ministry of Health is committed to continue its sensitization and re-sensitization campaigns on Ebola to its key stakeholders and the general public.
