Written answers (Question to Minister for Health and Children)

The national health strategy, Quality and Fairness: A Health System for You, launched in November 2001, contains a 121 point action plan. The Department compiles an annual report on progress achieved in the implementation of the strategy action plan. I have arranged for a copy of the annual report for 2002 to be forwarded to the Deputy. The Department is compiling a report in respect of 2003. A copy of same will be forwarded to the Deputy as soon as it becomes available.
