(West Indian Commission occasional paper, 5).
||Presents selected data on the health status and health services in the Caribbean and alludes to some of the more urgent emerging problems. Discusses in a general way the determinants of the health status and explores the possible relationship between health and development, with emphasis on health development. Refers to issues such as the increasing cost of health care and the problems of distribution and accessibility that must be considered in the context of equity as well as the attendant problems of human resource availability. Attempts to make the case for attention to women and health as a development issue and produces examples of how health concerns and activities related to health have been addressed in a Caribbean context and how these contribute to the strengthening the integration process. Finally, makes suggestions as to which issues the commission might address and how it can do so most effectively (AU)|
