The Alzheimer Associations of the Caribbean Miami Declaration

Press Release:- On September 26 through the 29th, 13 leaders of Alzheimer’s and Dementia associations throughout the Caribbean concluded a three day regional meeting in Miami Florida.

This important gathering of specialists from the Caribbean met to discuss and determine a consensus on how to move forward against this rapidly growing disease for our region.

The meeting’s topic of discussion was to reach a consensus and how to implement the support needed from the country’s governments, support from developed countries, as well as how to better educate the citizens throughout the Caribbean.

In attendance was St. Lucia’s very own highly trained specialist, Nurse Posvar. Who last month started St. Lucia’s Alzheimer’s Association for Saint Lucia.

The Alzheimer Associations of the Caribbean Miami Declaration marked a historic achievement and commitment in that it shows that Saint Lucia is not the only country affected by this disease.

ADI or Alzheimer Disease International has now compiled a detailed consensus that was reached during the meeting of 13 countries/territories of the Non-Latin Caribbean that included Barbados, Bermuda, Bonaire, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Curacao, Dominica, Jamaica, Saint Kitts & Nevis, Saint Lucia, Sint Maarten, Surinam and Trinidad & Tobago.

That consensus will now be brought forward and presented to our government to better establish a goal on how to help Saint Lucia’s fight against the wave of this oncoming disease.
