Biographical history

The Ministry of Health was established in 1976 as the successor to the Dept. of Health (OIC 3199/76). The ministry was responsible for managing public health in the province. In 1977, the deaprtment was organized into three major programs for mental health, public health and special health programs. After 1980, the department had three programs: Preventive Services, Direct Community Care Services, and Hospital Programs. Two years later the names of the programs changed to: Community Care, Long Term Care, and Hospital Programs. In 1984 the department’s two programs were Preventive and Community Care Services and Institutional Services. These changed to Hospital Programs, Continuing Care Services, and Emergency Health Services in 1988. Responsibility for seniors was added to the Ministry of Health in 1989, and in 1996 the ministry was renamed Ministry of Health and Ministry Responsible for Seniors (OIC 203/96). In 2001, the functions of the ministry were divided between two new ministries: the Ministry of Health Services and the Ministry of Health Planning.
