The FCDO is supporting Montserrat to improve healthcare on the island through its £40 million Capital Investment Programme for Resilient Economic Growth over 6 years from 2019 to 2025, which supports strategic infrastructure development, including building a new hospital. Furthermore, the FCDO have funded the procurement of a CT scanner, 3D mammography unit, oxygen generator and a neonatal incubator. The UK Government funded a £1.8 million COVID-19 programme which supplied vaccines, PPE, test kits, specialist healthcare staff, training programmes, in addition to a new laboratory with the ability to test for multiple viruses not just those pandemic-related. The FCDO also support the UK Health Security Agency programme of work to improve local capacity public health.
