Adobe PDF 4.7MB, 272 pages

...'This report covers the activities of the Ministry of Health for the period 1996-1998, a period during which the Ministry grappled with the implementation of Health Sector Reform Programme (HSRP). One of the major challenges encountered is the devolution of authority to the Regional Health Authorities (RHAs) in order to more effectively manage the institutions under their purview. We are, however, mindful that this period represents only the initial phase of the health sector reform, and that the full implementation of reform programmes in some countries has taken more than a decade or so.'...

Cancer Statistical Report 1995-1999

Adobe PDF 1MB, 72 pages

...'Between 1995 and 1999, 7834 new cases of cancer and 4426 cancer deaths were recorded in Trinidad and Tobago. The difference between the number of new cases in males (3926) and females (3908) was negligible (male: female ratio 1.00), but males outnumbered females for deaths (2378 versus 2048, male: female ratio 1.16.).  The incidence of cancer was strongly age-dependent, with less than 2% of tumours occurring in persons under the age of 15 years and 50% in persons aged 65 years and older. Almost half of all cancers, therefore, occurred in persons in the most productive age group (16-64 years.)'...
