Welcome to the Samoa Ministry of Health Web Page
Our web page exists to help and assist you to gain further insight and information on Samoa’s Ministry of Health and its Public Health Sector.
Ministry of Health (MOH) has the specific function of regulating the health sector. In this regard, it is required to establish policies relating to health sector development and the establishment and maintenance of health standards and measures. The MOH is also mandated to carry out national health promotions and preventative health to protect the health of Samoan public. The MOH is the regulating body, it initiates, develops and establishes and monitors laws which will effectively enable health policies developed by the MOH to be heeded by health service providers. The policies, laws and regulations which are driven by the MOH are to be compiled with by health service providers whether they are in the public, private sector or Non Government sector.
National Health Services (NHS) is the largest publicly funded health care service provider in Samoa.
