As I indicated in my response to Parliamentary Question No. 748 of 12 June last, work is ongoing in my Department regarding policy options for a potential public funding model for AHR treatment and it is my intention to bring a Memorandum to Government for a model of public funding for AHR treatment for the Government's consideration and decision in due course. This Memorandum to Government will outline a framework in relation to the implementation of the proposed funding model, including the timeline involved.
