Caribbean transformations : contemporary health care systems and their historical antecedents. Symposium. , 1989.
St Vincent's population history, first as a slave society, then, after Emancipation, as a migration-oriented society, has strongly influenced cultural attitudes towards sexuality and fertility.
In contemporary St Vincent, sexual activity and procreative ability are highly valued and linked to social status for both men and women.
This paper assesses historical and contemporary factors influencing population dynamics in St Vincent, West Indies, and Vincentians' reactions to programs developed to curb population growth.
