The CR-FELTP is a partnership between the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA), the health ministries of participating islands, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), with additional technical support from the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), and University of West Indies. As the programme grows, CR-FELTP graduates will contribute to country capacity for training and coaching.
