Beyond Condom's: PSI's NCD Work in the Caribbean

In 2010 PSI/Caribbean (PSI/C) saw the gap in noncommunicable disease prevention programming and took the opportunity to integrate NCD prevention into it’s sexual and reproductive health (SRH) service delivery program. With the support of International Planned Parenthood Affiliates in Antigua & Barbuda, Belize, Dominica, St Lucia, St Vincent & the Grenadines and Trinidad & Tobago, PSI/C launched a referral card system at IPPF clinics to support the uptake of services by our target populations including Youth-atRisk, Males-at-Risk, Females-at-Risk and the Uniformed Population.
