Seychelles health sector hails workers with varied activities

Celebrating this year’s Health Workers Day and World Health Day, a global tribute to all health workers and innovation they bring to the health sector, the Ministry of Health is hosting a week-long programme of activities from the 4th to the 12th April 2018.

The programme highlights a seminar to present the performance of the health sector and a new framework for health promotion in different organisations across the country and an award ceremony to reward 200 long-service staff as well as a staff who has shown commitment towards implementing person-centred care. In attendance will be government officials, Ministry of Health managers and staff and representatives from the private sector.

These activities will culminate to something more fun, where health staff joined by their families, health students, professional dancers and other government representatives will come together for a pop-up event in the Victoria market followed by the annual staff sports day.

Around 2000 workers are employed in the health sector, with 1669 working in the Ministry of Health.

Health Wokers Day and World Health Day is commemorated annually on the 7th April. This year these two days are being observed under the theme ‘Universal health Coverage. Everyone. Everywhere.’ or ‘Lasante par nou tou. Lasante pour nou tou!’
