Synopsis: 
A survey was undertaken to gather evidence on the frameworks and systems for surveillance of violence and injuries in 24 Caribbean countries. Each country reported some level of injury surveillance system; however, gaps were identified such that complete national data was not available. Such systems should be harmonized to produce more complete data.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine the status of existing violence and injury prevention (VIP) efforts and surveillance systems in the Caribbean.
