Preventing Interpersonal and Self-directed Violence and Injuries in the Caribbean

The issue of violence and injuries is clearly an established policy priority both internationally and in the Caribbean region. As efforts are underway to develop a plan of action in the region, this stakeholder dialogue aims to complement these efforts by drawing on the best available global and local evidence to help clarify some of the more pressing problems related to violence and injuries in the region (and in particular those for which the health sector is well-positioned to take a leadership role in addressing), frame options for addressing these problems, and identify implementation considerations.
