“As you all know, Ms Mendez left after one year and we offered the job to Dr. Lesbia Guerra but then just after Christmas she decided that she would not take on the position.  We believe that here we have a new Minister and that it’s important that the C.E.O. that we get is one that has experience in that Ministry. Dr. Sabido, I’m told, has more than ten years working in the Ministry; that that C.E.O. has some managerial experience – he has had some managerial experience within the Ministry. He is a person that will be able to build a team together with the Minister, and I believe that he can also do that, and certainly somebody that taken into account PlanBelize and will want to see its implementation. And I believe that Dr. Sabido will want to ensure that see the implementation of PlanBelize as it pertains to health, so when that decision was made, I thought that it was the right one.” 


Briceño said the Ministry should have the other two vacancies – a Director of Health and Wellness and a Director of Hospitals filled very shortly.
