Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E)
The key strategic objective of M&E is to provide quality training programs in public health, progressing to certification and accreditation. This includes ensuring that the CARPHA staff is competent in the core specialties (ex. Epidemiology, Laboratory, Surveillance, Research etc.). M&E can thereby ensure that CARPHA Member States are better equipped to address their public health functions through pre-service and in-service training opportunities. Read More
Policy Planning and Research (PPR)
CARPHA has an important role as the regional focal point for research for health. The PPR Unit of CARPHA is entrusted with the Agency’s Health Research Council functions. This includes the promotion, coordination, guidance and governance of research to inform policy, practice and health programming, with the aim of improving health and facilitating development in the Caribbean. The PPR Unit also plays a supportive and facilitative role as Member States seek to establish/strengthen their national health research systems to generate, access and use quality research evidence. The Annual Health Research Conference, the Caribbean Network of Research Ethics Committee (CANREC), the Agency’s Research Ethics Committee and the delivery of a suite of Research Skills-Building Workshops are some mechanisms used to achieve the Unit’s mandate.
