Transformational ChallengesDescription: Henry J Lewis Jr. has presented a collection of essays rooted in sociological, organizational, and the psycho-socio-cultural theories of complex networks of behavioural interactions. He addresses several transformational challenges that Jamaica, and to a large extent the entire Caribbean region, must grapple with in the 21st Century. In a unique style of writing, he gives his opinions on the challenges in education - issues of funding, STEM or STEAM and the need for more online delivery. The behavioural scientist has also shared his insights into the much-debated National Identification Systems (NIDS) for Jamaica; the plastic ban and the well-being economy; crime and national security, among other topics of national importance. This easy to read collection of essays will prove valuable to students, academics, and members of the general public.

Public Health - A. Campbell

Description: The health care system in Jamaica has always been one in which scholars, policy makers, health planners, health economists, health care professionals and practitioners, and health care users all have a vested interest. This book comes at an opportune time as it sought to cull the literature on the Jamaican health sector in such a way as to provide the reader with “insight” into the delivery of health care services to the Jamaican citizenry over the period from the seventeenth to the twenty-first centuries.
