CAS Newsletter Volume 3 Issue 3 (1) November 2020.pdf - See inside for article by Professor Karl Theodore, Advisor, HEU Centre for Health Economics
It is our pleasure to share the second edition of HEU’s Bi-Annual Bulletin for 2020. This publication is based on the theme ‘Resilience’ and explores key areas that should be considered in the regional recovery response to the pandemic.
This Special Edition Bulletin contributes to the dialogue on the COVID-19 pandemic by highlighting some of its multi-dimensional impacts in the Region including: (1) the macroeconomic implications and the outlook for economies; (2) the hidden mental toll at the community and individual levels and (3) the widened social gaps created by the outbreak.
This First Edition of the Bulletin highlights the results of the HEU’s work undertaken in collaboration with the World Bank aimed at investigating the impact of Taxation on Tobacco Use in Trinidad and Tobago and selected countries in the OECS. The publication also explores the link between tobacco use and increasing prevalence of non-communicable diseases in the Caribbean.
