SEYCHELLES MAY HAVE A UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL IN THE NEAR FUTURE

The Ministry of Health and MIOT International have started discussions into the possibility of building a University Hospital in Seychelles.

The project was initiated during a visit undertaken by Vice President Danny Faure and a delegation from the Ministry of Health to MIOT hospital in India in February this year. The visit concluded with the signing of a cooperation agreement between MIOT hospital and the Ministry of Health.

The Director of MIOT International, Dr. Prithvi Mohandas said they are equipped to help Seychelles build a world class facility and employ a world class faculty. He said that Seychelles will need to make an initial investment of US$5 million dollars. He added that in 5 years time, the government would need to inject another US$15 million dollars and MIOT will be willing to put up 50% of that amount.

The Ministry of Health and MIOT International have been working together since 2008. Every two years, specialists come to Seychelles hospital to consult and operate on patients for free.

NATIONAL ASSEMBLY APPROVES PROHIBITION OF TRAFFICKING IN PERSONS BILL

Seychelles will in the future have a law which specifically deals with human trafficking.

The National Assembly has approved the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons Bill, which proposes severe punishment for traffickers and protection for victims of such acts.

The minister responsible for Home Affairs, Mr. Joel Morgan says the bill need to sensitize everyone, in particular children about the bill. The bill seeks in particular to protect women and children. According to the bill, it is an offence to recruit, help and promote human trafficking.

During their deliberations, the members of the National Assembly stressed upon the fact that courts can rule that victims can receive protection as well as compensation.

The bill is also establishing a national coordination committee for human trafficking and it stresses the fact that in such cases there are the element of an act committed; means by which it was committed and the purpose.

FIRST EVER PROTECTED AREAS POLICY PUBLISHED

The Ministry of Environment and Energy has published a first ever protected areas policy.

This is in an effort to ensure that the Seychelles environment remains intact and sustainable through necessary rules and regulations.

Although a country with strong legal and policy framework in regards to protection and environmental management; most of Seychelles’ policies regarding management, protection and conservation of the environment dates back since 1969.

The new policy focuses only on subjects related to protected areas unlike previous policies which covered various aspects of protection and conservation of the environment.

The Minister for Environment and Energy, Professor Rolph Payet said that in addition to a complete revision of the areas categories to put Seychelles in line with its international commitments, the new policy will create an overarching framework that will help the management priorities of diverse protected areas.
