The Ministry of Health has set up its own Communication System to make sure it stays connected during Public Health Emergencies and Disasters.

The backbone of the system is this antenna at Baldy Beacon in Mountain Pine Ridge which facilitates communication between the Ministry of Health headquarters in Belmopan and Regional offices in Dangriga, Orange Walk Town and Belize City.

The system is designed to work during power outages that occur in natural disasters.

Work will commence shortly on the second phase, which will include San Pedro Town and the Western Region. PAHO provided funding of $28,000 dollars.
