For this occasion, the Prime Minister, Mrs. Evelyn Wever-Croes, and the Minister of Tourism and Public Health, Mr. Dangui Oduber, addressed the guests and healthcare stakeholders in a brief speech.

This institute is essential for the efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare in Aruba. It is part of the trajectory of the Landspakket Zorg known as F3. Since May 2020, the Government of Aruba made various agreements with the Government of the Netherlands concerning healthcare in Aruba. It is part of the conditions set for the loans provided by the Netherlands to overcome the pandemic.

The institute’s objective is to improve healthcare quality in Aruba and offer more efficiency and results for the community of Aruba. Quality control is the first objective of this institute. Other goals are to improve coordination, communication, and agreements for healthcare. It is essential to emphasize that this is in cooperation with all the Kingdom partners to have equality and quality healthcare on the same level as all the other partners in the Dutch Kingdom.

The institute has different objectives, namely the healthcare market supervision and new developments. They will also focus on regulating various tariffs and on the results of this regulation. The institute will guide these decisions based on different experts with relevant experience. One of the most significant achievements is the registration of our natives as medical doctors in Aruba through the AruBIG, which also resorts under this institute.

Minister Oduber stated that all the partners in the Kingdom are excited to work and cooperate with Aruba to achieve protocols and beneficial quality care for the community.

Aruba is reaching its goal of having more efficient, effective, and sustainable healthcare. The Government is grateful to all stakeholders who made this accomplishment a reality in Aruba and the partners in the Dutch Kingdom.
