Monday, August 28, 2006 – The new Chairman of the Caribbean Environmental Health Institute CEHI, Right Honourable Minister Dr. Bernard Nottage of the Bahamas paid an inaugural visit to the CEHI headquarters at Morne Fortune recently.

In the process the CEHI chairman established a more intimate rapport with the regional organization and acquainted himself with some of the major projects CEHI has undertaken.  Executive Director of CEHI Patricia Aquing says CEHI was quite pleased at the outcome of the introductory meeting.

“Some of the items we discussed with Minister Nottage include our programming for the year and issues which would be addressed at our upcoming meeting of the Board which takes place in September in Washington DC.

“These included new projects that we have on board and which CEHI is now accommodating.  One of which is the project on Integrating Watershed and Coastal Areas Management for Caribbean Small Island States for which a project unit is now established at CEHI.” CEHI also highlighted a new agreement with the Pan American Health Organization.”

“We were also able to discuss with him a new arrangement with the PAHO Office of the Caribbean Program Unit located in Barbados and they have agreed to physically locate one of its post here at CEHI. And that is the regional Environmental Health Advisor Engineer Anton Vlugman.”

Right Honourable Minister Dr. Bernard Nottage was accompanied on his trip by the Chief Medical Officer of the Bahamas Dr. Marceline Dahl Regis.
