About PAHO /WHO Guyana:
There is a long history of PAHO’s involvement in the Caribbean since Offices were created in 1951 before any of the territories had gained independence. The Zone I office in Caracas, Venezuela, had the responsibility for technical cooperation with the Caribbean territories.
With the attainment of independence, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados and Jamaica sought the establishment of separate country offices in the recognition that the organization’s technical expertise and financial support could improve their systems and health conditions. PAHO’s technical cooperation in Guyana was formalized in October 1967 with the establishment of the country office.
