Learning about health care in Samoa

Dear Editor

Re: Put people first

I can’t give my opinion on Samoa’s healthcare issues but I am curious about the health care system in Samoa.

Is it private? Does the government provide healthcare in any way to the people?

I am an Occupational Therapist and am going to be volunteering in Samoa next year and am eager to learn about the health care system and how its run from a citizen’s point of view.

What is positive, what is negative?

I see from this article there is a shortage of professionals, how does that impact local health care outside of hospitals?
