The Ministry of Health and Wellness (MOHW) will be staging the 13th renewal of the Annual National Health Research Conference (NHRC) from November 16-18, 2022. This will be our third virtual staging. The Conference theme is Combatting Non-Communicable Diseases: Looking to a Healthier Future.


The theme for 2022 is pertinent, given the impact of non-communicable diseases on individuals, the family and the health system; and the growing number of individuals facing the challenges of non-communicable diseases as both patient and care-giver. Non-communicable diseases continue to impact global and local economies and governments have been seeking innovative ways to address this silent epidemic.


The 2022 Conference will feature high quality abstracts on (i) Diet and Nutrition, (ii) Health Economics, (iii) Physical activity and Exercise and (iv) Health Status of Healthcare Workers. The conference will likewise feature high quality research from other areas.


The 13th conference will have five (5) Feature and Special Presentations. Firstly we will examine studies commissioned by the Ministry of Health and Wellness, MOHW Commissioned Studies featuring Prof Trevor Ferguson who will share his findings on the SALT Study, and Prof Fitzroy Henry who will highlight the findings of the Trans Fat Study. The growing economic concerns of health will be examined by Prof Abdullahi Abdulkadri in our Health Economics segment. We continue to explore COVID-19 with the Frontiers-Latest Research in COVID-19 in the Caribbean, with a representative from the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO), Mr Casimro Dias and Mr Paul Bourne from the Northern Caribbean University (NCU).


The conference continues to drive innovation with an exciting panel discussion on Innovations in Science and Medicine-Business of Medicine with Mrs Georgia Crawford-Williams, LifeSavers Wipes Innovator, Dr Maurice McNaughton from the Mona School of Business and Dr Yohann White, Entrepreneur.
