The Ministry of Health has received proposals for 50 of the 100 health clinics that form part of the Adopt a Clinic Programme that will be launched soon.
According to Health Minister Dr. Christopher Tufton, there has been a positive response to the programme.
He said of the 350 clinics in Jamaica, the ministry has set a target to get 100 sponsors.
Dr. Tufton added that based on the response, he is optimistic that all clinics will get a sponsor.
The health minister said based on the profile of each health clinic, the sponsors will be asked to provide medical assistance, and funds to maintain the facilities.
The Ministry of Health has established a special department with responsibility to make the receipt of medical supplies and assistance seamless.
