Barbados Diaspora Collaborative USA (BDC USA) Formed; Develops Plans for Hospice

As part of its 5th anniversary celebration in 2010, Barbados Cancer Association USA (BACA), Inc. convened a roundtable discussion on how Diaspora Barbadian organizations in the USA could collectively aid the health sector in Barbados. Such an initiative had long been on BACA’s agenda, but was made even more relevant by the late Prime Minister’s (Hon. David Thompson) push for Diaspora collaboration at the Barbados Network Consultation’s 2010 Inaugural Diaspora Conference.

Minister of Health Hon. Donville Inniss participated in the roundtable by telephone and shared his perspective and keen interest. As a result of that and subsequent meetings, there was consensus to move forward with the development of the Barbados Hospice Initiative. Subsequently, the Barbados Diaspora Collaborative was established, drawing directors, officers and members from the various organizations as well as individual, unaffiliated Barbadians.
