SMART Healthcare Facilities in the Eastern Caribbean Phase 2: Expressions of Interest

 

Phase II of the SMART Health Care Facilities in the Eastern Caribbean Project will be implemented in four selected countries, namely Grenada, Saint Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Dominica, over a period of three years starting in  June 2015. The project is being financially supported by the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID) in the amount of £ 8.2 million (US$12.6 million) and implemented through PAHO's Department of Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Relief,  in partnership with the Ministry of Health in each target country.

An overview of the project components was presented at a meeting of Chief Medical Officers held in Barbados on April 30, where all OECS (Organization of Eastern Caribbean States) Member States were represented.

PAHO/WHO Representative Dr. Godfrey Xuereb said, “The aim of the project is to support the Governments of the selected Caribbean countries to assess and prioritize vulnerability reduction investments in their health facilities. The support provided by DFID will allow us to ensure that critical health facilities in the Caribbean are safe and are incorporating green practices that will allow them to adapt to the effects of climate change, already evident in the Region.”

Through the project interventions, all health facilities of project countries will be assessed for disaster safety, water and energy improvements and will be provided with a roadmap for risk reduction investment. The results of the assessment will be incorporated into the national risk exposure database of each country.

At least 12 health facilities, three in each of the selected countries, will be retrofitted to help reduce the down time and potential damage to the facility in the event of a disaster.  It will also reduce operational expenditure with water and energy management improvements and ensure energy and water security to support continuous healthcare delivery in the event of a major disaster.

Phase I of the Smart Health Care Facilities Project in the Caribbean, also funded by DFID, piloted and tested the initiative at the Georgetown Hospital in St. Vincent and the Grenadines and the Pogson Hospital in St. Kitts and Nevis with good results.  The pilot included development of a toolkit for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, operations and maintenance solutions applicable to the Caribbean region.  The toolkit has a step by step guide and includes the Hospital Safety Index (HSI), Baseline Assessment Tool (BAT), checklists and cost-benefit analysis approaches to support decision making and promote smarter investment in action to manage the risks faced.

The project will benefit from PAHO’s high level institutional connections with national, sub-regional and global entities to ensure alignment with national priorities, Caribbean Community (CARICOM) action plans, the Caribbean Cooperation for Health (CCH III), the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) Comprehensive Disaster Management Strategy and Programming Framework and with the World Health Organization (WHO) Safe Hospitals initiative.
