    Like other countries around the globe where conditions existed for the parasites causing hookworm disease to thrive, this disease was a serious problem to settlers in countries of the Commonwealth Caribbean, i.e. those countries that were formerly part of the British Empire.

Soon other countries requested assistance and the Rockefeller Foundation responded by creating their International Health Commission.
