The Barbados National Registry
 

Barbados National RegistryThe Barbados National Registry for Chronic Non-Communicable Disease (BNR) is a national surveillance system being conducted by the Chronic Disease Research Centre on behalf of the Ministry of Health. The BNR is made up of 3 registries: BNR-Stroke, BNR-Heart and BNR-Cancer. Each registry collects data about new cases of cancer, stroke, and acute myocardial infarction (also known as a heart attack or cardiac arrest) and produces statistics concerning incidence, mortality, and survival. Information from the BNR is used to inform public health policy and clinical practice and is an important resource for Caribbean researchers investigating the problems of chronic disease.

The BNR is a unique initiative in the Caribbean. It is a Ministry of Health initiative being conducted by the Chronic Disease Research Centre of The University of the West Indies.

 
BNR in the Community

BNR in the Community : St Lawrence Primary Health Fair

 

The BNR Staff went out into the field to display to the staff and students of the ST. Lawrence Primary School the salt and sugar content in some of their favorite food items and beverages.  The children learnt that some of their favorite snacks and juices are filled with unhealthy amounts of salt and sugar; therefore natural alternatives should be used such as natural fruit juices and fruits.
