MEDICAL EQUIPMENT DONATED TO ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA’S HEALTH SERVICES

London, England, 1st July 2016… The Antigua and Barbuda High Commissioner today accepted a donation of medical devices from RAFFA International Development Agency for the Antigua and Barbuda health system. RAFFA is an independent charity which provides early stage support, technical assistance and programme development, to enable individuals, churches and local communities to build capacity and tackle the issues of educational attainment, health services, enterprise support and capital projects that enhance community assets. RAFFA was represented by Adviser, Mr Rudi Page.

High Commissioner Hill introduced Mr Page to the Minister of Health and the Environment, the Honourable Molwyn Joseph and the Chief Medical Officer, Dr Rhonda Sealey-Thomas, in a visit to the High Commission in May. That meeting explored opportunities for developing a strategic, collaborative and co-ordinated plan between the UK health system and the Antigua and Barbuda health care services in identified areas.  In making the donation, Mr Page stated “We are pleased that RAFFA’s Diaspora Health & Wellbeing Programme has been extended to Antigua and Barbuda and look forward to building a long term relationship with the Ministry of Health and the Environment”.

The medical devices donated included tracheal tubes, pulmonary breathing filters, oxygen tubes, nebuliser devices, percutaneous sheaths, spinal needles, syringes, surgeon gowns and patient drapes. Forming strategic partnerships between healthcare providers in the United Kingdom and Antigua and Barbuda is one of the objectives of the High Commission as the nations around the world commit to realising the Sustainable Development Goals including goal 3 of ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all at all ages.

“Go Right On” by Patrick Mclean supports One Love, One Blood Campaign

One Love, One Blood Saves Lives! campaign receives support from Patrick Mclean, a founding member of Brit Funk Band Hi-Tension, with a soulful melody titled ” Go Right On”. Patrick heard about the Blood Donor Drive in Montego Bay earlier this year and decided he wanted to help raise awareness for the campaign through his music.

Patrick has donated his services without charge and has done a fantastic job for the One Love campaign and I hope everyone will support this tune.
