Healthcare in St. Kitts : Peace of Mind
by Marlene L. Phillips


St. Kitts Lounging on the beach with a sumptuous cocktail, the waves lapping gently on the shore suggesting a siesta, while a warm tropical breeze caresses your skin. The moment surrounds the end of the day, as the sun transitions from a bright lemon burst into a golden glow, then crests the horizon, a mellow mandarin hue, and takes its last glimpse of the dying day.

The furthest thought on your mind is “Where is the nearest hospital?”

For the 33,320 people who live here and for the many thousands of tourists who visit the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis every year, 'don't worry, be happy!' Th
ere are four hospitals to care for our health and fifteen Health Centers.

JNF (Joseph Nathaniel France) General Hospital is located in Central Basseterre, St. Kitts, and is named after the then Minister of Social Services. It has state -of -the -art equipment and services; an ICU (Intensive Care Unit), Cat-Scan, (Eelectrocardiograph and Echocardiography) ECG to deal with cardiac problems and a Medical Air-Lift Service that will fly a patient to Puerto Rico or Miami for special treatment.

St. Kitts Hospital

Mary Charles Hospital in Molineaux (NE - St. Kitts) is named after a teacher who was also the first woman to run for politics.

Pogson Hospital in Sandy Point (West - St. Kitts) is named after Edward Pogson a planter who provided land for the hospital. The facility is presently being upgraded with a daycare area, an expanded Dental Division and an Emergency Medical Unit.

The Alexandra Hospital is located in Nevis and is named after Princess Alexandra from England. A number of medical private practices are available to cater for specialist and general practice in the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis.

St. Kitts There is also an efficient support system from strategically placed Health Centers , eleven in St. Kitts and six in Nevis, which facilitate patrons island-wide. All locations are conveniently listed in the local St. Kitts and Nevis Service Directory along with other important emergency numbers.

The Ministry of Health truly stands by its mission to “…utilize its resources to ensure a healthy population by guaranteeing access to health services, which are available, acceptable and affordable to all users in the Federation”. The Ministry of Health is located on Church Street Basseterre
St. Kitts and operates Monday thru Friday 8:00am – 4:00pm under the auspices of the Honourable Rupert Herbert and Permanent Secretary Elvis Newton. The Honourable Minister Hensley Daniel and Permanent Secretary Joslyn Liburd are in charge of the Nevis Administration facilities.

The key responsibilities of the Health Ministry are to;

St. Kitts a. Engender an increased awareness in the national community about environmental health conditions and risks.

St. Kitts b. Promote a coordinated and integrated set of activities for preventing illness, and managing harmful habits and diseases.

St. Kitts c. Strengthening the system for disease surveillance thereby enhancing the national effort to combat chronic communicable and non - communicable diseases, including new and re-emerging ones.

St. Kitts d. Promote policies and programmes to enhance the health and quality of life of the family unit.

St. Kitts e. Encourage individual and community efforts for the promotion of healthy lifestyle habits.

St. Kitts f. Substance abuse prevention as priorities on the National Health Agenda.

St. Kitts g. Build institutional capacity through the strategic management of resources to improve administration of the National Health Sector.

As the number of elderly people in communities increase the need for a comprehensive National Health Plan has become a priority.

Andrew Skerritt, Health Planner for the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis and Focal Point for the National Strategic Health Plan, has been working over the past four years with the Pan-American Health Organization and several work groups, consisting of health executives of line Ministries from both St. Kitts and Nevis, civil service organizations, agencies from the private sector and NGO’s to establish a five year plan to address the health concerns of all recipients.

As a result of the collaborative effort, objectives, measurable indicators and expected results have been created to chart consumer needs, identify areas for development and progress in the following priority areas:

1.Chronic non-communicable diseases

2. Health Systems Development
3. HIV/AIDS and STI (Sexually Transmitted Infections)

4. Health and Environment

5. Human Resources Development

6. Family Health

7. Mental Health and Substance Abuse


St. Kitts Now that the plan has been completed it must go through a final assessment before being presented to Cabinet for government approval and endorsement.

Some of the initiatives have already been put into practice to incrementally improve services. It’s anticipated that by 2011 all of the goals outlined in the National Health Strategic Plan will be fully implemented.

All life on earth has a limited life span and the way we take care of ourselves spiritually, mentally and physically has a lot to do with our overall well-being and ultimate longevity.

Healthy living is a combination of eating foods to nourish our bodies vitamins and minerals necessary to fuel our bodies and exercise that helps us to maintain a manageable body weight that does not put unnecessary strain on us physically.

Although, living in the Caribbean appears to be a carefree paradise and eating foods that are native to its land should be a healthy choice there are some major health concerns for people who originate from the Caribbean.

View of St. Kitts

One of the most serious conditions for Caribbeans is diabetes. It is expected that by the year 2010 diabetes incidence will have reached 25% of the adult population. Others include heart related conditions such as strokes, heart-attacks and hypertension. The National Health Strategic Plan addresses these through promoting healthy lifestyle habits.

St. Kitts Visitors to St Kitts and Nevis don't need to be concerned with any major health issues. The most important thing they should focus on is figuring out what the proper SPF factor of their sunscreen should be, and purchasing a fashionable hat that provides good shade,because the sun is really intense and being sunburned is not attractive and trust me it doesn’t feel good either.

A little bit of common sense applied to your health and safety goes a long way.

If you have an extremely sensitive stomach then you should drink bottled water to avoid frequent visits to the toilet. Travel with a basic first aid kit that contains the treatments you are accustomed to using. When planning your vacation make sure that you include travel insurance when booking your flight.

If you do have an unexpected emergency you will have to pay for medical services upfront and send a claim to your insurance agent for reimbursement later.

The hospitals in St. Kitts and Nevis can process all major credit cards on the premises. It is still good to plan for the unexpected.

Visitors who already have medical conditions become consumed with their vacation activities and forget to follow through with their prescriptions, sometimes putting themselves in a crisis situation that requires them to be hospitalized.

As long as you take the normal precautions of a new traveler to a foreign land and eat foods and drink liquids that you are familiar with, even though you might be wildly adventurous, you should will be okay.

St. Kitts Herbalists world-wide have been extracting and utilizing the healing properties of natural plants for centuries and it is no different in the Caribbean.

Traditional medicine has a very secure following here in St. Kitts and Nevis.

If a Kittitian hears you with a sniffle or a cough, its almost guaranteed that they will recommend you have a big cup of “Bush Tea” made from a combination of local leaves and grasses such as lemon grass.

Some of the traditional medicines have tales of allure that accompany their medicinal nature. While a fruit named Sour Sop has the ability to induce sleep when the leaves are steeped it is also belived that “…laying the leaves of the soursop on a bed below a sleeping person with a fever will break the fever by the next morning.”

A plant known as “Jumbee Bead” is belived to have been used by Obeah Men, but it also is used to treat colds, flu and asthma.

M. C. Whittaker published a book entitled “Medicinal Plants of St. Kitts and Nevis, which reveals hidden medicinal properties contained in some of the plants and exotic fruits that will inevidibly garnish your delicious meal or cocktail glass.

So while you are visiting take note of some of the luscious fruits that could help you address some mild health conditions. Coconut produces a liquid known as “Jelly Water” that treats gastroenteritis when consumed.

When the bud of the Guava fruit is boiled it alleviates diarrhoea. Passion Fruit leaves are used to make tea for fever and hight blood pressure. Tamrind leaves are used to make a tea for colds and fever.

Drink drawn from the Sorrel Pod is used to address hypertension and Maiden Apple leaves are steeped and used to deal with asthma. So while you are here eat as much fruit as you can.

Retire to Mexico


Have you ever thought about retiring in Mexico?
How about retiring in one of its many lovely retirement havens?
Dru Pearson, the author of this report, tells us that there are five major areas where American and Canadian retirees tend to congregate. While there may be a few expatriates scattered in a dozen villages throughout Mexico, most Americans and Canadians settle in one of five locations: San Miguel de Allende, Mazatlan, Oaxaca, Guadalajara, or Lake Chapala. Dru Pearson visited all these areas before settling in Lake Chapala. Dru gives sound and thoughtful advice on retirement in Mexico. Everything from how to pick your location to Mexican paperwork is covered. If you've ever considered retirement in Mexico please read this report first. It has the information that would otherwise take you months of frustration to acquire.

But why Mexico, you might ask? The reason so many Americans and Canadians choose Mexico is because they can drive to Mexico in a car. A bigger reason is that Mexico is a bargain compared to the USA and Canada. But there are also a large number of Europeans in Mexico. Mexico is rich with history, steeped in culture, having perhaps a more pronounced culture than any other nation in latin America with the exception of Brazil and Argentina. Mexico has great food, great architecture and many areas with an excellent climate. Mexico is also modern, with better highways than many parts of latin America and an infrastructure that allows foreigners to connect via telephone and internet to the rest of the world. This level of infrastructure isn't available in Nicaragua, nor in Guatemala, and this is a very important determining factor for the retiree who doesn't want to be inconvenienced by inconveniences.

Island Helicopters based in the BVI

"How To Buy Costa Rica Real Estate Without Losing Your Camisa" was written by Scott Oliver with the help of dozens of Costa Rica real estate experts and attorneys.

Costa Rica Living

This is not a book about living in Costa Rica; it is a 140 page comprehensive English-language guide to buying Costa Rica real estate.

Contrary to what some people may have told you, there is no Multiple Listing Service! Trying to establish the 'value' of real estate is difficult.

Half the population of Costa Rica call themselves 'brokers' because anybody can freely call themselves a real estate 'broker'. They do not need any qualifications, training or experience to try and sell you real estate.

What this means is that when you search for Costa Rica real estate, which may be one of the biggest investments of your life, more than likely, you will listen to expert advice coming from someone with zero qualifications or training in real estate, who is trying very hard to earn a sales commission selling you a property that could be overpriced.

If this sounds like a recipe for disaster to you, it can be!

The Dominican Republic Report - The Complete Report On The Dominican Republic.

There are many places you can go to in the Caribbean, but there is only one spot that has been called "The Best Kept Secret".

That place is the Dominican Republic, and the time to find out about this investors paradise is sooner, not later! You can find out about basic statistics from any book-store travel guide, but not the honest kind of perspective you are looking for. What is it really like to live there? What is the cost of living? How do I find the real estate or apartment bargains? Can I find good Internet access? What is the shopping like? How about banking rates? Ask most Americans about the Dominican Republic, many have not heard of it. For those that have discovered it while on vacation, many have decided to call it home. Whether you are looking for something different ~ like Santo Domingo's 500 year old Zona Colonial ~ The Left Bank of the Caribbean, or just a great Caribbean escape at an affordable price - The Dominican Republic is the Place. Offshore Investors are also starting to discover the country. Many are calling it the best investment opportunity of the new millennium. We could not agree more.
