HIV/AIDS Coordinating Unit

The mission of the HIV/AIDS Coordinating Unit is to lead the Ministry of Health’s response in reducing the incidence of HIV infections in Trinidad & Tobago and also mitigating the impact of HIV/AIDS in persons infected and affected in Trinidad & Tobago.

The HIV/AIDS Coordinating Unit (HACU) was restructured and renamed from National AIDS Programme to the HIV/AIDS Coordinating Unit in September 2006. The HIV/AIDS Coordinating Unit in the Ministry of Health coordinates, advises on policy direction, monitors and evaluates the implementation of the Ministry of Health’s response to the HIV epidemic through the HIV/AIDS Health Sector Plan (HSP). The activities identified in this plan are implemented by the Regional Health Authorities (RHAs).

The Health Sector Plan covers four of the five priority areas of the National Strategic Plan (NSP).

These are:

  1. Priority Area I  : Prevention
  2. Priority Area II : Treatment, Care and Support
  3. Priority Area III: Advocacy and Human Rights
  4. Priority Area IV: Surveillance and Research
