CARIBBEAN COMMISSION 

UNITED STATES SECTION (AACC) 

As a result of an exchange of notes between the Governments of the United States and the 
United Kingdom, a joint communique was issued on March 9, 1942, announcing the creation of the 
Anglo-American Caribbean Commission. In 1945 the Governments of France and the Netherlands 
accepted invitations extended to them by the United States and the United Kingdom to become full 
members of the Commission, now known as the Caribbean Commission. 

The purpose of the Commission is to encourage and strengthen social and economic cooperation 
between the four member nations and their possessions and territories in the Caribbean, and to avoid 
unnecessary duplication of research. It is concerned primarily with matters pertaining to labor, 
agriculture, housing, health, education, social welfare, finance, economics, and related subjects in the

territories under the United States, British, French, and Netherlands flags within the Caribbean 
area. In its studies and in the formulation of its recommendations, the Commission is charged with 
bearing in mind the desirability of close cooperation in social and economic matters between all 
regions adjacent to the Caribbean. It serves as an advisory and expediting body and works with 
the appropriate United States, British, French, and Netherlands agencies that have administrative 
responsibility in regard to the problem in question. 

The United States chairman reports directly to the President, but for reasons of administrative 
convenience the United States Section of the Commission acts as an integral unit of the Department 
of State.

INSTITUTE OF INTER-AMERICAN AFFAIRS (IIAA) 

The Institute of Inter- American Affairs, a United States corporation operating under the authority 
of the Department of State since termination of the Office of Inter- American Affairs in 1946, was 
reincorporated for a period of three years by an act of Congress approved by President Truman on 
August 5, 1947. The new corporation charter merged the Inter-American Educational Foundation, 
Inc., into the Institute as its Educational Division. The management of the Institute is vested in a 
Board of Directors. Each member is appointed by the Secretary of State. The Secretary also appoints 
the Chairman of the Board. 

The Institute is responsible for furthering the general welfare of and strengthening friendship 
and understanding among the peoples of the American republics through collaboration with other 
governments and governmental agencies of the American republics in planning, initiating, assisting, 
financing, administering, and executing technical programs and projects, especially in the field of 
public health, sanitation, agriculture, and education.

FOOD SUPPLY DIVISION 

Is responsible for furthering the development of agriculture in the other American republics 
through the conduct of technical assistance programs in cooperation with the local Ministries of 
Agriculture. By introducing modern agricultural techniques and providing training in advanced 
practices, the Food Supply Division is increasing production of foodstuffs for local consumption and 
demonstrating United States standards which should lead to a higher level of living and greater 
purchasing power for the people. It is also gradually stimulating a demand for United States methods 
and products and extending United States influence to people hitherto not reached. 

Food supply programs are carried on in each country under authority of a cooperative agreement 
signed by representatives of the United States and the host government. This agreement outlines 
the type of programs to be undertaken, and provides for the execution of specific project agreements 
describing in detail the work to be done. While the choice of exact projects depends on local needs 
and circumstances, in general all projects involve (a) demonstrating improved methods of irrigation, 



88 REGISTER OF THE DEPARTMENT OF STATE 1948 

drainage, erosion control, and seed-bed preparation; (b) assisting local producers in obtaining seed, 
fertilizer, insecticides, etc.; (c) initiating or strengthening agricultural education and extension pro- 
grams; (d) assisting in construction of food storage facilities and improvement of distribution and 
marketing systems; (e) demonstrating improved methods of livestock and pasture management; and 
(/) training of nationals to carry on future activities. 

William Brister, Director 

Rey M. Hill, Assistant Director 

Majorie R. Evans 

EDUCATION DIVISION 

Is responsible for the development and supervision of cooperative education programs, in collabo- 
ration with Ministries of Education of the other American republics, which will bring to the masses of 
the people the essential instruction and skills that are required to enable them to read and write, to 
understand the problems of their communities and contribute to their solution, to improve the health 
and living standards of their communities, and to learn the fundamental skills which will enable them 
to add to their earning power and thus contribute also to the improvement of agriculture and industry 
in their communities. 

The form which the work takes in an individual country is determined by local conditions, needs, 
and expressed desires. All field programs are cooperative on a bilateral basis, and the Division 
operates on the premise that its job is to help neighboring countries to help themselves in building 
stronger national systems of education based on national culture, traditions, and environment, rather 
than to seek to impose a purely North American system. It is possible to classify field programs now 
in four categories: (a) those that deal primarily with vocational training and the preparation of 
vocational teachers; (6) those that deal primarily with the training of teachers for rural schools; 
(c) those that deal primarily with the improvement of rural life and agriculture through the develop- 
ment of community schools; and (d) those that deal with a reorganization and functionalization of 
secondary schools.

HEALTH AND SANITATION DIVISION 

Is responsible for furthering the development of sound public health measures by setting up 
technical assistance projects in collaboration with national, state, and local Ministries of Health; 
to provide better health standards assists in the establishment of public health services with approved 
principles of administration and technical procedures and trains personnel to administer and strengthen 
these health services. 

The health and sanitation work, thoroughly cooperative and democratically organized, is carried 
on in the Latin American countries by Servicios, — in most countries known as the Servicio Cooperativo 
Interamericarw de Salud Publica. The general plan of the cooperative health and sanitation program 
is to set up t\pes of projects which will supplement and strengthen existing health programs. Before 
projects are set up, a general survey of the services being carried out by the organization is made, 
and the weak points of this over-all program are selected as fields in which the Cooperative Health 
Service can work. The types of technical assistance projects conducted are; (a) training of profes- 
sional and practical workers locally by short courses, in-service training, development of schools of 
nursing and financial support of other institutions; and by grants for public health training in the 
United States; (6) health education of the lay public in the cause, transmission, and control of disease 
and the promotion of health, to obtain the understanding and support of the people essential for 
effective health work; (c) surveys and studies for the definition of local problems with development of 
appropriate and economical solutions; (d) environmental sanitation through provision of municipal 
water supply and sewerage facilities; construction of sanitary privies, wells, markets, and slaughter- 
houses; insect and rodent control; garbage disposal; and establishment of hygienic food handling pro- 
cedures; (e) health facilities and services such as health centers, hospitals, clinics, laboratories, and 
other research institutions, to provide basic medical and public health functions. Through the health

and fill, larviciding, DDT spraying, suppressive drugs, and treatment; (g) special campaigns against 
other diseases such as intestinal parasites, smallpox, typhoid fever, diphtheria, typhus fever, yaws,

safety programs on a national basis in selected countries.
