Developed in 2008, WPP’s robust network in the Eastern Caribbean also includes partnerships and programs in the islands of Antigua & Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, and St. Kitts & Nevis.  WPP partners with local health providers and Ministries of Health in these islands to support their existing health systems by providing access to pediatric services unavailable locally. Regional capacity building and training initiatives equip and empower local doctors and nurses to provide high-level care at home.
