During a virtual message at the Labour Party’s conference on ‘Renewing Malta Together’, Deputy Prime Minister and Health Minister Chris Fearne revealed that a number of sexual health services which were previously limited only to Mater Dei will now be offered at health centers and clinics across the country. This means these services will not only be offered at the GU clinic at Mater Dei but will instead reach a broader target of people needing help and assistance through more hubs. This is a very positive move to introduce more sexual health awareness for the island, considering how many see it as lacking in this regard.
The minister revealed that talks are at a very advanced stage to put this into effect. Fearne also revealed that these talks are attempting to have pharmacies open up later on Sundays into the afternoon, as well as address mental health concerns by refurbishing Mount Carmel hospital and stating how the vaccination rollout against COVID-19 was immensely successful. More information regarding these massive changes will be revealed shortly.
