Postal Address Ministry of Health St. John’s Antigua
Antigua is divided into six geographically determined Medical Districts, each of which is served by a government-appointed District Medical Officer responsible for providing medical services to residents.
Primary Health Care Service in the district includes maternal and child health, health education, environmental sanitation, community mental health, nutrition, diabetic and hypertensive screening and care, communicable disease control and surveillance and home visitation. As part of ongoing decentralization efforts, Parliament enacted the Hospital Boards Act in 1999, which was implemented in 2000.
Health services in Barbuda are regulated and organized by the Barbuda Council. http://www.paho.org/English/DD/AIS/cp_028.htm (accessed on 23.04.2009)
