The new Public Health Bill will be tabled in the next Parliament sitting this month.

Minister for Health and Medical Services Jone Usamate confirmed this yesterday.

“Our Public Health Bill is complete and we will table it in our next Parliament sitting,” Mr Usamate said.

“The Bill has been completed and it has to go through Parliament first before the Bill is implemented,” he said.

Mr Usamate said there had been a lot of consultation work done by the ministry to get this Public Health Bill done.

“The main thing we need to focus on is to prevent people from getting sick and this is what Public Health Bill does,” he said.
