It gives me great pleasure in welcoming you to our National Department Of Health website this year 2018.

The Website is a initiative by the Information Communication & Technology Branch in line to the Government's directive to streamline delivery of better health services to the rural majority and the urban poor.

The Health Department is faced with alot of challenges in many areas of health and one important area is health information and communication awareness materials aimed at prevention of common diseases prevalent in our communities, schools and villages.

Our HIV & Aids programs, Malaria, TB, Immunisation, Diarrhoea and Dehydration, Anaemia, and other priority areas need to be addressed and this is one way that we feel will help us contain and or treat these diseases that are rising dramatically in the country.

It is a priviledge to have you on board our website and I hope that you will enjoy our site and continue to do so as we journey on the path for better health in our homes and towns.

Health Minister Hon Sir Dr Puka Temu
