Guam - The Legislative Committee on Health and Social Services gathered today in Adelup. Public Health Director J. Peter Roberto says the group continues to meet with Matrix Design Group, whose task is to create a five-year strategic plan for the island. Roberto says Matrix conducted a presentation on work completed so far. The mission of the plan is to look at capital improvements, workforce development, healthcare financing and policies.

"It's moving along and I'm very happy on behalf of the subcommittee that we're at that point where the data collection and the bench marking is now completed. We're moving now to the actual writing of the plan. What is also important is how we fund the plan?" he said.

Roberto adds that his committee will be meeting with Region IX to discuss the mechanics of funding the plan through the use of federal agency budgets.
