Travel and Communications: Their Relation to Health Problems in Small States

Many of the new countries in the Commonwealth are small states, small in terms of population and in many instances in land mass and identified resources. Many, like those in the Caribbean, are separated by sea although grouped together. Within these states mountainous terrain, forests or other ecological factors, along with the underdeveloped state of roadways, make internal communications difficult.
