DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.145

The Editor,

Sir,

Medical cooperation plays a major role in the improvement of healthcare in developing countries, including in the Caribbean region. Collective action to promote the health of the Caribbean people was taken several decades ago through the formation of the Caribbean Cooperation in Health (1). There have been improvements in important health indicators such as maternal and child health, and immunization.

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.268

The Editor,

Sir,

Chronic toxicity by vitamin A may occur with long-term ingestion at lower doses in patients with chronic renal failure, but hypercalcaemia is rarely observed in this setting and is probably due to effects of the vitamin A on bone osteoclastic or osteoblastic phenomena.
