Small Islands Developing States (SIDS) are generally seen as countries with enormous problems. These are usually attributed to their small size. limited natural and huma, resources, environmental fragility, and proness to natural disasters. These issues have dominated the relevant intellectual and policy literature. Conversely. there is scant literature about how SIDS manage themselves specifically on matters of public policy. That which does exist is anecdotal and descriptive. This existing literature conveys an impression of the policy process in SIDS as idiosyncratic excessively personalist illogical and marked by incompetence. This thesis looks specifically at the implementation. and management of health policy in SIDS III the Caribbean. It reviews public policy. and health policy theory. the relevant regional literature on health care needs. health policy and administration. and it goes on reports on fieldwork research in Anguilla and the British Virgin Islands. The analysis and exploration was framed by five research questions. and is done with the tools and concepts of public policy and policymaking theory. The fieldwork research takes the form of three contrasting case studies in each island territory. preceded a description of the context of each country.
