Plans to develop a robust National Health Insurance system in St. Kitts and Nevis are advancing but will not be finalized without public consultation.

Universal healthcare, as it is commonly called is a priority for the government, with Prime Minister and Minister of Health, the Honourable Dr. Terrance Drew, heading up efforts to make healthcare more accessible in the twin-island Federation. He referenced his medical background and noted that most persons will suffer a catastrophic illness during their lives and will either die or require prolonged care.

“I see it all the time,” the Prime Minister said. “… Right now, cancer is the number one cause of death in St. Kitts and Nevis, and I look around at us in the room, and I can count and say how many of us would end up with cancer.
