MoH’s objectives need to be reached, says His Majesty


“The Ministry of Health (MoH) launched its strategic plan in September 2019, with a focus on five objectives – excellence in healthcare services, the prevention and control of infectious diseases, public protection through effective policies and regulations, immunity through the use of optimum and innovative resources, and a transparent and proactive administration.

“All of these objectives are impressive, but we have yet to see them being reached. The MoH was provided with a huge budget of almost BND400 million, and is expected to deliver excellent services for citizens and residents. The services are being supplied by four government hospitals. Given this, there is no reason why good and quality services cannot be provided.”

His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu’izzaddin Waddaulah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar ‘Ali Saifuddien Sa’adul Khairi Waddien, Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam said this during an unscheduled visit to the ministry.
