Minister of Health in the Nevis Island Administration, the Hon. Hensley Daniel says this year’s theme for World Health Day, April 7th, 2008 is of particular importance to Nevis.  He said given its small size and the possible negative impact of climate change the Nevis Island Administration (NIA) had taken steps to protect the health of its citizens in light of changes in recent weather patterns.
 
Mr. Daniel made the statement while he delivered a televised address in observance of World Health Day, Monday April 7, 2008. This year’s theme is “˜Protecting Health from Climate Change.’
 
“Since coming to office in July 2006 the new NRP government has introduced an Environmental Work Programme to improve the aesthetic value of the country and maintain a clean and healthy environment.  We have re-organised the Solid Waste Management Corporation and improved efficiency in the collection and disposal of garbage.
 
“We must ensure that ghauts and drains remain open to allow for run-off and prevent flooding.  Constant weather events, variable climates that affect food and water supplies, new patterns of infectious diseases outbreaks, and emerging diseases linked to ecosystems changes, are all associated with global warming and pose serious health risks,” he said.
