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.
