Initial Phase of Site Construction Completed

As of September 15, 2008, this site contains basic information about prostate cancer customized for every single Caribbean island nation.

At this time, this content is only provided in English. Our next two goals will be

  • To add additional content that is specific to individual nations (see, for example, the information on the Tobago Prostate Survey project)

These second stages of the development of Prostate Cancer Caribbean will take a little time, but we hope to have made significant progress by the end of 2008.
