The Premier of Guadalcanal Province Hon. Francis Sade, states that he supports Premier Stanely Manetivaโ€™s (Central Islands Province) call for SIG and all premiers to have an urgent roundtable discussion on the $40 million.

The fund is given by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to address the Covid-19 impacts in the provinces.

Premier Sade raises his concern this morning after Premier Manetiva made the call on Solomon Business Magazine Online (SBMOnline) yesterday.

โ€œI acknowledge Premier Manetivaโ€™s timely call to SIG and all premiers to have a roundtable discussion on the $40 million under ADB in order to address Covid-19 impacts in the countryโ€ Premier Sade says.

He continues โ€œthe national government should directly proportionally disburse the $40M to the nine provinces rather than channel it through the Ministry of Health and Medical Services. In doing so, our provincial governments will optimize the funding to address the Covid-19 outbreak swiftlyโ€.

Premier Sade furthers โ€œPerhaps, the provincial governmentsโ€™ dependency on the MHMS for the past two years has caught us [provincial governments] by surprise. Well it should not be a surprise, provincial governments should be given more funding to build their own provincial isolation and quarantine centers in anticipation of the Covid-19 outbreak two years prior”.

He then states โ€œIn the case of Guadalcanal Province, SIG should not be clustered under Honiara City Council or the National Referral Hospital, but rather as a โ€˜provinceโ€™. The case on point is that Guadalcanal Province does not have a provincial hospital and a Second Level Medical Store (SLMS) compare to other provinces. This is why I make calls on behalf of my people every year for SIG to assist us with a provincial hospitalโ€.

Premier Sade reiterates that he supports Premier Manetivaโ€™s urgent call and looks forward to having a meaningful discussion not only on the ADBโ€™s $40M fund, but other issues pertaining to the healthcare system in the Province during the Covid-19 outbreak.
