Focusing on the formal public health sector in Trinidad, the HIV and AIDS service provision assessment (HSPA) findings provide information on both basic and advanced-level HIV and AIDS services and the availability of record-keeping systems for monitoring HIV and AIDS care and support. Within the Caribbean region, there is a concern for the recent training of health professionals who provide HIV and AIDS services, for health worker attitudes towards people living with HIV and AIDS and for patient movement within the region. The Trinidad HSPA captured information on these region-specific indicators in addition to the standard HSPA indicators. Since HIV and AIDS services are not offered across all facilities or facility types, and these services are relatively few, the sample is disproportionately representative of known sites for HIV and AIDS services. Although the emphasis of the HSPA is on public facilities, if private or non-government facilities are important providers of HIV and AIDS services, they were also included. The survey was conducted in a sample of 32 facilities (21 public facilities) in Trinidad, including hospitals, health centers, medical stations and laboratories.
