Jamaica’s Ministry of Health and Wellness is encouraging more partners to join the islandwide Adopt-a-Clinic programme.

According to the Jamaica Observer, under the initiative, the Ministry has earmarked 100 of the 320 health centres across the island for support from individuals including international groups and corporate entities, with the aim of strengthening the nation’s primary healthcare system.

Health Minister Dr. Christopher Tufton said that the adoption really means partnering with a stakeholder body to support the needs of that institution and to enhance its efficiency in carrying out its functions.

He noted that the assistance can be in the form of providing medical equipment and furniture or giving the facility a facelift.
