Our Local Stakeholders


The Medical Research Foundation

The MRF was established in March 1997 as an NGO under the leadership of Professor Courtenay Bartholomew primarily for research to investigate the Epidemiology of HIV & HTLV-1.
• In 2002, the Government of Trinidad and Tobago commissioned the MRF to become the first treatment site for patients infected with HIV in Trinidad & Tobago.
• The MRF expanded from 250 patients (2002) to 8,000 patients (2017).
• The MRF is the largest of the 5 adult treatment sites in Trinidad and Tobago--- representing 73% of all PLHIV known to be in care. Ward 2 Clinic San Fernando is second largest site with 1,554 patients.

The National AIDS Coordinating Committee (NACC) is a multi-sectoral co-ordination committee which includes participation of major stakeholder groups such as Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), Persons Living with HIV (PLHIV), Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and Key Population Advocates (KPAs), Trade Unions, government, international and regional agencies, academic and private sector organisations. The NACC was relaunched in December 2016 to co-ordinate the national multi-sectoral response, set priorities, goals and targets, advise and guide the Government of Trinidad and Tobago on HIV and AIDS Policy.

The HIV/AIDS Coordinating Unit (HACU)

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 Healthʼs response to the HIV epidemic through the HIV/AIDS Health Sector Plan (HSP).
The mission of the HIV/AIDS Coordinating Unit is to lead the Ministry of Healthʼs 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.
