Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel & Casino, Convention Boulevard, San Juan

This summit will focus on lessons learned following the two devastating hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico and the Caribbean Region in 2017.

We invite you to join us in this important event to share  your experiences, lessons learned and recommendations for enhanced resilience in health care systems and public health.

An emphasis will be placed on the critical need for collaboration and integration across all sectors to improve and strengthen the health and resilience of the Caribbean’s citizens and communities during this important recovery and rebuilding phase.

The Caribbean Region is in a unique time in history to “Build Back Better,” by following innovative strategies that are founded upon evidence-based approaches and lessons learned to maximize the opportunities available.

We recognize that in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean Region, most systems, both private and public were impacted by the hurricanes. An integrated examination of the resilient capacity of all sectors and their interdependence is essential to develop evidence-based best practices for the future.
