Public Health has aging employees

64% of Ministry of Public Health employees are over the age of 65, and 67% are over 60. Most do not want to retire because they would lose their health insurance. According to El Caribe, the ministry is working on a proposal to transfer its employees to the National Health Insurance program (Senasa). According to the Human Resources director at the Ministry, Maira Minaya, the oldest employees include janitors, security personnel and laundry workers, as well as health professionals like doctors and nurses who can no longer fulfill their jobs. She mentioned one case of a 90-year old hospital watchman who has not yet retired because he has not worked for the minimum number of years required for a pension.
