More Emphasis on Teen Services

Health and family development education will ensure Tobago’s youth have the support they need to succeed.

Secretary of Health Wellness and Family Development Dr. Agatha Carrington said youth facilities on the island will provide care to children who need it.

“We have a Child and Adolescence Centre located at the old Fort and we intend to continue strengthening that service such that our children and adolescents will be supported,” Dr. Carrington said during Wednesday’s (July 4) post Executive Council media briefing at the Calder Hall Administrative Complex.

The Health Secretary said initiatives like the Programme for Adolescent Mothers (PAM) is also helping young first-time mothers find their way.
