The newly formed Caribbean Public Health Agency held it’s second partner’s meeting today at PAHO/WHO’s headquarters in Washington DC. According to a previous CARPHA press release, the meeting was

“to gain backing from the global community for this single, people-focused public health agency for the region.”

A Google News search found only one article with the search term “CARPHA”–about St. Kitts and Nevis officially signing documents to establish the agency, joining Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Grenada and St. Lucia. So I’m hoping there will be more about this meeting in the coming days.

The meeting was attended by PAHO/WHO Director, Dr. Mirta Roses, and PAHO/WHO Deputy Director, Dr. Jon Andrus, Dr. Denzil Douglas, Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis and CARICOM Lead Head of Government for Health and Human Resources, Ambassador Lolita AppleWhauite, Secretary General (acting) of Caribbean Community (CARICOM), and other regional authorities.
