This three day conference is designed to explore the complex relationship between public health and Latin American and Caribbean societies from the colonial to the present era. As the third leg of a series of international workshops on the history of public health policies and practice in these regions, it will focus on the engagement of medical personnel, policy makers, health agencies and the public in relation to the evolution of public health perspectives, regulations and implementation.
