A Proposal for Assistance With Specialist Medical Services for the Small Status of the Commonwealth Caribbean

Health services in the small stales of the Commonwealth Caribbean are widely recognised to be grossly inadequate at all levels. There are shortages of personnel and equipment. Whilst the major efforts to assist these states are properly directed towards social and preventive medicine, and to providing an effective primary care service, these services cannot be appreciated by the affected populations unless an adequate secondary care service is also provided.
