The Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment continues to recognize that the issue of ensuring good health and wellness among citizens and residents in Antigua and Barbuda cannot be done alone.
We, at the Ministry are therefore always pleased when good corporate citizens and organizations come on board to assist in educating the population on the importance of having a holistic approach to their health and well-being.
