A vote of confidence for public officers who have assisted in rolling out the new national Health Insurance Pilot program, which was launched on Monday.

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit says the program would not have been launched at this time without the efficiency and determination of public officers.

Government on Monday presented $5M to the Dominica Social Security which will manage the program for pregnant women 35 years and under and children 3 years and under.

Meantime , Executive Director of the Dominica Social Security, Janice Jean Jacques Thomas says the launch of the National Health Insurance Pilot Program, is a dream come true for many in Dominica.
