The Minister for Health, Permanent Secretary and Staff join with so many others who knew Mr. John Fabien, former Minister for Health, former Permanent Secretary of Health and Environmental Health Specialist in offering our deepest sympathy on his passing.
Although it is little consolation at this sad time, it should be of some satisfaction to know that in his passing you can celebrate the end of an extensive and productive life.
The Ministry of Health has lost one of its stalwarts in the health fraternity, one who led the early health reforms and drove the Primary Health Care thrust in Dominica.
It is said that “The measure of a life well-lived is not in how much money one has or what possessions they have accumulated, but rather through the lives they touched”. The Ministry of Health has truly lost a mentor and friend because they also loved him.
We convey heartfelt condolences and deep sympathies to his dear wife, children and to the bereaved extended family. May you find peace and comfort in knowing that your loss is felt by all who knew and loved him.
Mr. John Fabien will always be remembered and admired for his outstanding contribution towards the development and advancement of health in Dominica and the Caribbean
The Minister for Health and Staff
