~ Motto: We will be smarter ~

PHILIPSBURG–Promoting employment, employability and quality health services, public health and healthcare provisions are among the priorities for the Ministry of Public Health, Social Development and Labour VSA this year.

Other priorities include ensuring social protection and social provisions, as well as adherence and rights to a healthy and safe society.

These priorities were outlined to VSA staffers at an extended staff meeting held at Caribbean Cinemas Megaplex on Thursday, February 21.

During the meeting, Health Minister Cornelius de Weever and the VSA Secretary-General Jorien Wuite went over the accomplishments and challenges that the Ministry faced in 2012, and elaborated on the top priorities that each of the nine departments under the Ministry will be focusing on this year.

The intention of this meeting was to encourage, motivate and applaud staff for their work. The ministry’s motto for this year is: We will be smarter. “Smarter in the way in which we make use of our financial and human resources, which means being more critical and making choices to secure efficiency and avoid unnecessary expenditure,” it was stated in a press release.

Following the meeting, staffers were treated to popcorn, a drink and a movie. The release said staffers left the meeting “feeling enthused about their planned contributions for 2013.”
