Barbados: a fit medical hub

The Pan-American Health Organization Director Dr Carissa Etienne believes that Barbados should be a centre for sub-regional health care owing to the small sizes of economies of Eastern Caribbean territories and medical expertise available here.

Following her delivery of the 43rd Sir Winston Scott Memorial Lecture the Dominican second-term Director of the United Nations hemispheric organization responded to a question on sharing medical resources between her island and Barbados saying that this island is best-suited to be the designated home of specialized medical care for the surrounding states.

“Barbados has a high concentration of health specialists and it could be a hub for many of the Eastern Caribbean islands particularly those that surround Barbados,” Dr Etienne said at the Frank Collymore Hall last night.
