Posted: Monday, December 7, 2020. 5:01 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: The EU/CARIFORUM Strengthening Climate Resilient Health Systems Project has been inaugurated to support actions to mitigate climate change and its serious health impacts in Caribbean nations. 

A joint project of the European Union and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) coordinated by the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) it will advance public understanding of climate change effects and strengthen the ability of health systems to respond to climate-related health impacts. 

PAHO Director, Carissa Etienne, called for the region to increase our solidarity and inter-governmental collaboration to address climate issues, which are arguably the health challenges of the century and embrace mechanisms for countries to come together around climate change. She cited assistance to nations in the region in accessing funding for coping with climate change. 

The project will cost €6.85 million (USD $8.28 million) and benefit Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Cuba, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago. Partners in the project also include Caribbean universities, and regional climate, public health and agricultural agencies and organizations.
