A Changing Approach Towards a "Healthy Curaçao"

One of the meetings in Curaçao.

Washington, DC, 16 January 2020 (PAHO/WHO) - Curaçao's new vision of the Ministry of Health, Environment and Nature, 'A healthy Curaçao' refers to a healthy and safe living environment in which citizens are given equal chance to engage and contribute to a healthy environment.

For this new health sector approach, from a cure-oriented healthcare to a more wellness oriented and proactive approach towards maintaining health and quality of life, the Ministry has asked PAHO/WHO to provide technical assistance in strengthening their national information system.

The Information Systems and Platform Unit in PAHO/WHO conducted an assessment of the current state of the country’s information systems for health, using the PAHO IS4H Maturity Model Assessment Methodology.
