Based on the information included in the Monitoring and Evaluation section, a first version of an analysis of the dynamics (stages and principal actors) and of the contents of the health sector reforms in the English-speaking Eastern Caribbean countries was prepared. The country profiles of Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, Saint Lucia, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines, were reviewed and included in the analysis.
The document was presented at the Eastern Caribbean Health Systems and Services Profiles Workshop held in Barbados, June 5-7, 2002. The comments, observations, and suggestions from the workshop participants were incorporated. The profiles for The Bahamas, Turks & Caicos are to be included in the analysis once finalised by the country teams. Subsequently, the information included in the Guyana, Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, and Suriname profiles was incorporated into the analysis that follows. (1st edition, July 2002)
