St Kitts and Nevis is increasing its health facilities

A new general hospital and a more resilient healthcare system will soon be built in St Kitts and Nevis. Prime Minister Timothy Harris announced the government's plans for a new health facility.

St Kitts and Nevis has been COVID-19-free since May 18, when the last of the 15 cases recovered. According to the government's latest emergency regulations valid until June 27, borders remain closed to incoming or transit commercial international travel. Ruling coalition Team Unity pledged to upgrade the country's health infrastructure over the next five years. This includes building a new state-of-the-art hospital, a permanent quarantine facility, and pathology laboratories; expanding and renovating several existing health centres; and improving access to healthcare at national level.
