Conflict of Interest at NHI in OW ?

The Government of Belize is gearing up to roll out the NHI program in the Orange Walk District. GOB recently announced that the NHI services have been put out for bidding and at least five medical facilities have submitted proposals. However, one of the institutions that have raised concerns about bidding on behalf of the Northern Medical Plaza, since the Executive Chairman of the NHI also owns this facility. This is how Prime Minister, John Briceño responded to this line of questioning.

Hon. John Briceño, Prime Minister of Belize: “Well first of all I don’t know if they’ve applied. It is open to everybody for bidding. I think they’re going to open the bids I don’t know if today or tomorrow or some time this week and the last time when this was done it was very clear that it was very open and transparent and if his company or his clinic is applying because they have the necessary equipment and the doctors and so to offer the services I think they should as long as they are doing it within the budget as what is asked of them and that they provide the service that is necessary.”
