The UWI-based Social Determinants of Health Internship Programme exposed these 20 young people from Trinidad and Tobago to the health-related work done by nine local NGOs. This programme helped them to develop research and professional skills through a five week curriculum developed in partnership with the Institute and UWI’s Faculty of Medical Sciences.
