For the speedy economic growth of a country, a well-founded infrastructure is required. Saint Lucia’s government realize the significance of a dependable infrastructure.

The world came to a standstill during the COVID-19 pandemic and this in turn placed a spotlight on the need for strong and advanced health infrastructure to manage possible healthcare crises in the future. Saint Lucia has assured the general public that having a new, developed health sector equipped with modern amenities is a priority.

With the installation of new facilities and technology, the government and health ministry also provide training to the medical personnel concerned to enhance their knowledge and broaden their skills.
