Health sector welcomes new boss


The Health Sector yesterday officially welcomed the Ministry of Health’s new Director General, Leausa Dr. Toleafoa Take Naseri.

The Minister of Health, Tuitama Dr. Talalelei Tuitama, spoke to welcome Leausa following a brief prayer service conducted by employees of the Ministry of Health.

Leausa takes over from long-serving Director General, Palanitina Toelupe. “The vision or dream to become the Director General of Health is an ambition that is driven by passion and motivated by personal endeavours,” said the Minister. “It is usually influenced by circumstances experienced throughout one’s life journey.”

Like most people, the Minister said Leausa “held strong to the beauty of his dream to become the Director General of Health someday.” That moment has arrived, he said. Tuitama said Leausa’s parents both had strong health backgrounds so it is no surprise that Leausa is following their footsteps. “It is a calling from God,” he said. “It comes with privileges to benefit from it and it also comes with a deeper sense of responsibility.” Tuitama reminded the new D.G. that he is responsible for the nation’s health. “You have responsibilities for the sector’s well being, you are responsible for the staff under your care and last but not the least, you are responsible to the position who have been elevated to.” In response, Leausa said he was deeply humbled by the honour. He acknowledged Cabinet, especially Prime Minister, Tuilaepa Sa’ilele Malielegaoi, for choosing him. “There will always be challenges,” he said. “There will always be bad and good people. “But I feel that our ministry has the capacity, the experience and the knowledge to move forward.” With God on their side, Leausa is optimistic about the future.
