As Belize strives to develop a strong engine of sustainable economic growth, it is the role of the Ministry of Health to ensure a better quality of life for all Belizeans. The Ministry’s role is to maintain an environment that is conducive to good health and wellness within a framework that ensures equity, quality and accessibility.
Our community-based programs must function pro-actively to promote prevention. Our medical services must operate within national established standards, norms and protocols to improve the services provided to customers.

The Ministry of Health is presently undergoing a reform aimed at improving its effectiveness and efficiency. The Ministry is focusing its energies on three major areas: Health Reform, Quality Improvement and Caring for its Care Providers. We envision a national health care system which is based upon:

  • equity
  • affordability
  • accessibility
  • quality
  • sustainability

in effective partnership with all levels (sectors) of government and the rest of society in order to develop and maintain an environment conducive to health.
