Description

Order code: SP 561

The countries and territories of the Caribbean area have a long tradition of collective action. This tradition was embodied in the formation of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) in the early 1970s, and later was strengthened by the initiative known as Caribbean Cooperation in Health (CCH).

In Health Conditions in the Caribbean, the Pan American Health Organization presents an overview of the challenges and conditions faced by health systems in the CARICOM member countries (the English-speaking Caribbean and Suriname). Now, for the first time, policy makers, researchers, and practitioners can turn to one comprehensive source for accurate information about the health situation in these diverse nations.

The first section of the book highlights the general health status and the social, economic, and political context of the Caribbean populations, while the second section describes developments in eight specific health programme areas. Five of these areas correspond to priorities identified in the CCH: maternal and child health, food and nutrition, control of noncommunicable diseases and injuries, AIDS prevention and control, and environmental protection.
