The Dominican Republic has announced plans to build over 20 hospitals, including three major centres in the capital, with capacity for over 200 beds each, as part of an ongoing campaign to relieve its overstretched healthcare services. Last week's announcement by health minister Jose Rodriguez Soldevilla was accompanied by an invitation for funding for the project and follows recently announced plans to build six maternity and four general hospitals, financed with a loan backed by Belgium. The country's new hospitals will be equipped so as to provide the entire population with access to the latest equipment, the minister promised.
