With different cultures (British, French, Spanish, Dutch), governments and political histories (democratic, autocratic), the standards of medical care and facilities vary from island to island in the Caribbean, and many of the chronic diseases found in highly developed countries are now prevalent throughout the region. With lifestyle changes over the years, Chronic Non-Communicable Diseases (CNCDs) such as diabetes, hypertension, asthma and cancer are now prevalent and exact a great toll on the health of individuals and an untenable strain on the public health systems of these cash-strapped countries.
Information and outreach programs and activities CAMSA provides can play a pivotal role in aiding
Caribbean people in combating these illnesses and staying healthy. We invite you to join us and be a part of this mission. Whether you’re a healthcare professional, community member, student, other individuals of Caribbean heritage or have an interest in improving healthcare, we have a place for you in CAMSA. Go on a medical
mission, staff a booth at a health fair, help coordinate a conference or serve on a committee!
