Abstract

When we talk about the most scenic Caribbean islands, St. Lucia is one of those islands that certainly come into our mind. It is a beautiful tourist destination and the place of post-volcanic paradise on earth. However, just like many remote Caribbean islands, St. Lucians (name for local population) used to have its own difficulties of obtaining on demand basic neurosurgical services in their homeland. This beautiful Caribbean island, socioeconomically falls in the same category as most low-and middle-income countries (LMICs) and unfortunately echoes the same unmet surgical and anaesthesia needs as the rest of them.
