Secretariat Members

The Health Council Secretariat includes those individuals responsible for carrying out the mandated functions of the organisation.  We have a small team of 12 and despite our size, our remit is quite large.  The Secretariat prides itself on being an efficient and reliable team that has the public’s best interest in mind for all that we do.  As we constantly seek ways to improve our operations and the execution of our functions, in 2016 we underwent organisational restructuring which resulted in the development of our three directorates: Health Economics, Health Regulations and Operations.
