Gregory Mair appointed NHF chairman
Former chairman of the Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC), Gregory Mair is the new chairman of the National Health Fund (NHF).
Mair took over from businessman Christopher Zacca who was appointed last April and was expected to serve up to 2019.
Mair stepped down as JUTC chairman in January over reported differences between him and Transport Minister Mike Henry.
Speaking for the first time as chairman at the Kingston launch of the Public Sector Pharmacy Partner Pilot Programme, Mair said he will ensure that the NHF continues to meet and exceed expectations of clients and stakeholders.
Mair pointed to the NHF's role in increasing access to affordable healthcare resources, saying creative ways must be found to meet healthcare needs despite limited resources.
