Bureau of Health Administration & Support Services (BHASS)

The Bureau of Health Administration & Support Services (BHASS) was endorsed by the Republic of Palau President on September 21, 2015 pursuant to Executive Order 381. It was established as a bureau shortly after. The units within BHASS provide a variety of support and administrative services to all Ministry of Health Programs.

BHASS is supported by the Administration Office which is responsible for maintaining daily operations. The Administration Office provides excellent service to patients, clients, employees, and the general public. The office also facilitates communication, dissemination of information, support of the work of colleagues, and the assistance that patients & families are directed to the services needed.
