The Ministry of Health plays a leading role in improving the
health of the people including mental, physical and social
well being, for overall national development with the increased
participation of the private sector and non-government institutions
in the implementation of programmes. The Ministry is also responsible
to make necessary arrangements and formulate policies for effective
delivery of curative services, disease prevention, health promotive
activities and establishment of a primary health care system.
These activities will be maintained at an international standard
under the policies declared on health by His Majesty's Government,
ultimately improving the overall condition of health services.
