The LIFE Project

The LIFE project is an island-wide cohort (follow up) study that will enrol 8000 Jamaicans in order to understand the role of genetics, social, environmental and lifestyle factors in cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

This type of study is expensive but provides the best evidence for putting in place measures to improve health care and prevent these conditions.Find out more
