The Division of Health, Wellness and Family Development hosted an Open Day Exhibition for the Policy, Research, Planning and Development Unit (PRPDU) on Friday (December 14).
In 2017, PRPDU was expanded to support the strategic development of Tobago’s health sector through data collection.
A non-communicable diseases (NCD) registry was established to collect the relevant data. Ultimately, an NCD plan for Tobago will be developed following the expansion. Several proposals have been submitted to access funding for the project.
The exhibition created a forum for the Division to publicise the data acquired, share information on the proposals submitted for funding and inform on how the continuous data collection will be used. The event took place at the Division’s conference room.
