Our Vision: Quality, Affordable Health Care for All

In his New Year’s Address, Prime Minister Dr. Kenny Anthony called upon Saint Lucia to engage in a great and consequential policy journey – he called for the creation of a universal, affordable, high quality healthcare system.

This is a tremendous undertaking. When complete, it will make sure that all Saint Lucians will be able to see a doctor when they need to. No more will people have to forego medical treatment because they can’t afford it.

We won’t be able to implement this system overnight. It will take careful study to ensure that the plan is economically solvent. But, we’ve already taken the first steps to making this vision a reality.

We’re developing universal healthcare in a bipartisan way. While, be assured, the SLP is leading the way in providing this critical new benefit for the people of Saint Lucia, we know that this is a national programme and requires national unity. That’s why we took the initiative and invited former UWP Prime Minister Stephenson King to serve on the committee looking into the establishment of this new universal healthcare system.

We’re leading by taking this important policy journey toward universal healthcare. And, we’re leading by making this journey bipartisan. Ours is a party with a critical vision: to deliver universal, quality, affordable healthcare to all Saint Lucians. And, that’s why we must continue working to make sure this vital benefit is delivered to our people. We hope you will support us in this visionary effort.
