At the meeting, held virtually, regional health authorities updated on new programs, exchanged experiences and made recommendations to carry on and improve actions.

On behalf of the CARICOM Secretariat, Royer thanked the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) for working together with CARICOM member countries.
