ABSTRACT

The aim of this study was to conduct a literature and secondary data review regarding leptospirosis and its impact in Grenada. The data analysed consisted of a published secondary source of animal investigations. The results of this investigation suggested that the burden of this disease is quite substantial and significant for the population of Grenada, as well as its global visitors. An examination into the literature related to public health policies and practices that could be suited to a developing nation like Grenada was then conducted. Recommendations were made regarding these analysed public health programmes revolving around surveillance, vector control, sanitation and education.
