Same old, same old

Re: Govt. priorities slammed

I saw the same thing 30 yearss ago blah blah blah.... we have replaced just about everything on the waterfront .... the lovely new Justice Department buildings and courts administration buildings and fire department and Police department ... new Government administration buildings Etc ... but up on Motootua... obviously not much has changed at all from this woman’s experience.

Yeah we have got it wrong... the well off in Samoa hardly ever used the hospital except in dire emergency and until they could get a flight to NZ or elsewhere 30/20/10 yrs ago.. that too doesn’t seem to have changed either (or has it). 

The socio economic gap has widened exponentially in many areas over the years... but health care delivery and our Hospital facilities should be at least on par with …

Oh I don’t know....

Haiti perhaps!? 

They have some pretty excellent clinics and ER facilities in Port au Prince and I am pretty sure we have more resources than Haiti ... don’t we?
