Ministry Launch ‘Healthy Horizons’ Newsletter

June 24, 2024 | 2 Comments

The Ministry of Health has launched the ‘Healthy Horizons’ Newsletter, a new publication that will be distributed throughout Bermuda.

A Government spokesperson said, “This newsletter will offer vital updates on the Bermuda Health Strategy 2022-2027 and the ongoing progress toward achieving Universal Health Coverage [UHC]. The ‘Healthy Horizons’ newsletter will provide accurate information and clarity on UHC aimed at informing residents while clarifying how UHC will enhance accessibility to core health services.

“The newsletter will be mailed to residents and businesses throughout the year and will be available for download from Latest Updates | Bda Health Strategy. It will also be provided to healthcare advocates to share with vulnerable members of our community who may not otherwise have access to the information.

“The ‘Healthy Horizons’ newsletter is intended to keep residents informed and ensures that the public stays updated on crucial health initiatives,” said Minister of Health Kim Wilson.

“Understanding the Bermuda Health Strategy 2022-2027 and the progress toward Universal Health Coverage [UHC] helps residents stay engaged and aware of the efforts to improve healthcare accessibility and quality throughout the island. We want our residents to actively participate in and support health reforms directly impacting their well-being.

“The Bermuda Government has consistently demonstrated its commitment to transforming Bermuda’s health system. Our goal is to ensure that all Bermuda residents have access to essential high-quality health services without facing financial difficulties.

“While this is a multi-year process, significant progress has been made over the past two years. The Ministry and Health System Stakeholders have been working closely to implement the Bermuda Health Strategy and UHC. This work includes the initial mapping of three integrated care pathways, conducting a Joint Strategic Needs Assessment, and the ongoing development of a National Digital Health Strategy for Bermuda. Results from these initiatives and invitations to participate, have been shared with the public through our media partners, the UHC Stakeholder network, and on the Health Strategy website [].”

Minister Wilson continued, “However, it is imperative that we reach as many of our residents and businesses as possible to ensure there is a clear understanding of why we are implementing UHC in Bermuda and other reform initiatives. Everyone should have the opportunity to know how they will benefit from UHC and other health system reform efforts. Together, we can meet the goal of having a healthier Bermuda where everyone has access to the essential health services they need.”

    The PLP cannot organize a bus schedule so having any input or control of healthcare will be a disaster. Work on the vast population who are unhealthy by poor choice of food and exercise. Replace the sugar tax with a tax/health insurance fee based on body mass and watch the improvement in healthcare costs.

      The OBA can’t organize enough clowns to run the circus so the puppets are all hands up.
