Dr. Kramer Meets with Director of Health of the Ministry of Health for the Government of Turks and Caicos

December 14, 2016


Today Dr. Melvin N. Kramer, President of EHA Consulting Group Inc. met with Dr. Nadia Astwood Director of Health of the Ministry of Health for the Government of the Turks and Caicos Islands in the Caribbean.

In their broad discussions, they spent a lot of time discussing Zika, which has been minimal in the islands of Turks and Caicos with no cases negatively affecting any residents or, to the best of their knowledge, tourists. However, of course, having a tourist-based economy, they are very concerned on the potential and actual impact to their thriving tourist economy by both perception and reality of what is published in the U.S. by entities such as the CDC.

Dr. Astwood contends that not everything that is stated about the Turks and Caicos on the CDC website is accurate. Something, which Dr. Kramer can personally vouch for over the years. The Caribbean Public Health Agency published a very informative poster entitled "Small Bite Big Threats - Protect Yourself and Your Environment from Vector-Borne Diseases."
