By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The Dominican Republic held the Pro-Tempore presidency of the Council of Ministers of Health of Central America and the Dominican Republic (COMISCA), from July-December 2022.
During that time, there were many decisions focused on improving the quality of regional health including discussions on the COVID-19 pandemic and Mpox.
The Dominican Republic has transferred the Pro Tempore Presidency (PPT) of COMISCA to Belize for the period from January to June 2023.
Dr. Daniel Enrique Rivera Reyes, Minister of Health and Social Assistance of the Dominican Republic, highlighted the work done by the Dominican Republic.
Those include assuming compliance with the resolutions and commitments acquired in the Health Plan for Central America and the Dominican Republic 2021-2025.
The Pro-Tempore presidency from COMISCA was received by Kevin Bernard, Minister of Health and Wellness.
Bernard assumed the commitment and leadership to continue with the advances in regional health.
“Unfortunately, Health emergencies also have to do with emerging infections, and the COVID-19 pandemic should have taught us how to deal with new situations such as monkeypox and polio. The planning time for the other pandemic is over; We must always be prepared with the necessary resources to act immediately,” Bernard stated.
The rotation of the Pro Tempore Presidency of COMISCA is carried out in accordance with the provisions of article 3 of the Regulations of the Pro Tempore Presidency of the Central American Integration System, SICA, where it details that: “The Pro Tempore Presidency is exercised by rotation every six months in the Central American geographical order”.
