Population Programme Unit

INTRODUCTION

Issues related to sexuality affect individuals throughout the life cycle. The Government of Trinidad andTobago established the Population Programme Unit in 1969 to facilitate the delivery of fertility management services to citizens. This department has been the major provider of Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) services in the country. These services include fertility management in all primary care facilities, the Port of Spain General Hospital and the Mt Hope Women’s Hospital, diagnostic screening or cervical cancer, first line counselling in SRH, specialist referrals and education and training programmes.


At present, the department, through the Ministry of Health, has developed a new policy for the reorganization of SRH services.  A number of activities have been initiated to ensure a collaborative approach to this paradigm shift for the delivery of SRH services.
