The Tobago AIDS Coordinating Committee (TACC) has been re-established with the responsibility for coordination in the Office of the Chief Secretary. It is a multi-sectoral body established to coordinate the national response to HIV and AIDS.
Earlier today (October 29) the launch took place to formally start the operation of the Committee.
TACC will focus on the management of HIV/AIDS policies, activities and programmes and will advance these policies through its programme and projects.
In addition, the committee will monitor the island’s response to HIV/AIDS with the aim of improving the delivery of healthcare to HIV/AIDS patients through the Health Promotion Clinic, its implementation arm.
The launch took place at the conference room of the Division of Health, Wellness and Family Development.
