Belize is experiencing a shortage of nurses for our public health facilities.  According to the Acting Deputy Director of Health Services, Nurse Ann Matute, this is one of the reasons they have been forced to accept help from other countries to staff the medical facilities.

Ann Matute, Acting Deputy Director of Health Services:“We have a huge huge shortage. We have, the WHO which is the World Health Organization has said that we need 105 nurses per 10,000 population for us to be working in the health system so that we could give better quality of care to our patients. In Belize we have 23 nurses per 10,000 not even half of the 105 so we’re very very short and what is happening is that our nurses that we have right now are overworked, the become fatigued, you have a lot of nurses being absent from work because they’re tired.”

Nurse Eleanor Bennett, Registrar, Nursing and Midwives Council

Nurse Eleanor Bennett, Registrar, Nursing and Midwives Council: “The shortage of nurses is not a problem that is unique to Belize; it’s an issue all over the world.”
