About - What is TTHSI?


The Trinidad and Tobago Health Sciences Initiative is an umbrella programme being implemented by the Government of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.  TTHSI, as it is referred to, represents a collaboration among the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Science, Technology and Tertiary Education, the University of Trinidad and Tobago (UTT) and Johns Hopkins Medicine International (JHMI), aimed at advancing medicine and health sciences in Trinidad and Tobago and the wider Caribbean.  Projects are being undertaken in three general categories:

  • Academic and Research Programmes
  • Specialty and Clinical Programmes
  • Infrastructure and Management Programmes

with the core considerations being:

  • Sustainable, long-term improvement of the health sciences in Trinidad and Tobago, related to research, education and patient care
  • Development of specialty and subspecialty clinical programmes for providing quality care to citizens
  • Development of infrastructure, systems and training that will allow the promotion of bio-medical and pharmaceutical research to be conducted in Trinidad and Tobago
  • Development of training and education programmes for physicians, clinical professionals, health administrators and support staff
  • Creation of an environment that will attract and keep top medical personnel from around the world
