Bolivian Health Minister Steps Down

LA PAZ – Bolivian Health Minister Rodolfo Rocabado was sworn in on Wednesday, after former minister Ariana Campero decided to step down to prepare for motherhood.

Campero, who had been Bolivia’s health minister for three-and-a-half years, said she had decided to step down for “personal and family” reasons, as she is six months pregnant.

Campero said that she wanted to take care of “her little girl” once she was born rather than to continue an “accelerated pace” as minister.

Campero added that she was certain that the projects the Ministry of Health had started would continue with her successor.

The new minister, a surgeon who was previously the head of Bolivia’s Health Services, was sworn in at the Palace of Government in La Paz before President Evo Morales.

The president expressed his willingness to continue implementing policies to improve the public health system, while warning that “some changes are difficult, but necessary.”

As health minister, Campero had to face several crises, including a long medical strike organized by doctors who objected to an overhaul of the regulatory framework of the medical profession.
