The Southern Regional Health Authority (SRHA) which administrates public healthcare in the parishes of Manchester, Clarendon and St. Elizabeth has embarked on the training of all its staff members in compassionate care, in an effort to improve the quality of public healthcare.

MIAMI - Researchers at FIU’s Center for Children and Families (CCF) are evaluating the most effective classroom interventions for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) through a $3.3 million grant from the Institute for Education Sciences.

The project was financed and implemented by the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ) through its Energy Efficiency and Conservation Programme, which finances investments in energy efficiency and energy conservation measures in the public sector. The multifaceted intervention involved the installation of a modern, energy efficient cooling system which utilises a rooftop packaged system design at the Accident and Emergency Department, which will ensure that this section of the facility meets the compliance standards for fresh air.

The health centre was renovated at a cost of $11.5 million, funded by the Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF). Residents can access services including: maternal and child health, curative, dental, dressing, child’s guidance,mental health, environmental health, nutrition and women’s health.
