Ministers review progress towards health sector reform

Santo Domingo.- The Minister of Public Health and Social Assistance, Víctor Atallah, held a meeting with the Minister of Public Administration, Darío Castillo Lugo, to oversee the ongoing work and reform initiatives within the health sector.

This meeting is a part of the broader General Plan for Reform and Modernization of the Public Administration (Reformap), established by President Luís Abinader through decree number 149-21. It aligns with decree 284-21, declaring the reform and modernization of the Public Administration as a matter of high national interest, specifically within the health sector.

The Minister of Public Administration highlighted the progress made through the “Thematic Health Roundtable,” a platform dedicated to diagnosing issues and formulating actions to enhance the Dominican health system. Notably, the implementation of the National Strategic Health Plan (PLANDES 2030) has been a key focus.

It was emphasized that the continuity of the sectoral technical table was reaffirmed, consisting of the Ministry of Public Health and Social Assistance (MISPAS), the Ministry of Economy, Planning and Development (MEPyD), the National Competitiveness Council (CNC), the Ministry of Finance, the General Budget Directorate (Digepres), and the Ministry of Public Administration. This platform serves as a coordination space for identifying, executing, and monitoring reform activities outlined in the governance pillar of PLANDES 2030.

The actions outlined in this initiative encompass sectoral strategic alignment, reinforcing steering functions, and governance. Additionally, budget allocations are being considered to review the sectoral salary scale and implement technological enhancements for more efficient management.
