About the Conference

CARPHA, in collaboration with the Government of Trinidad and Tobago, is hosting its 64th Annual Health Research Conference on June 20 – 22, 2019. This year's theme, "Primary Health Care : Current and Future Models for the Caribbean", presents an opportunity to highlight indigenous research that can contribute to health systems strengthening and our understanding of the governance, financial and delivery arrangements for health care and public health services in the Caribbean.

The CARPHA Annual Health Research Conference is the longest running health research conference in the English-speaking Caribbean. It provides a forum to disseminate research findings and facilitates the exposure to and the uptake of current cutting-edge research to enable the development of evidence-based policies, programmes and practices.

The Conference is attended by policymakers, researchers, health and allied health professionals (physicians, nurses, psychologist, environmental health officers, etc) and other public health officials from across the Caribbean Region, Latin America, North America and Europe. It also serves as a training ground for the Region’s budding researchers.

The Conference provides excellent visibility and opportunities for delegates and sponsors to network with pharmaceutical companies, health systems providers, medical equipment manufacturers, water and wastewater companies, diagnostic kit producers, academic institutions, built environment companies, laboratory equipment suppliers, Government agencies, and Non-profit and Non-Governmental Organisations.
