As an activist University, The UWI continues to engage in the search for sustainable solutions for the Caribbean to confront the COVID-19 challenge. Our philosophy is that Universities are built and resourced to serve their communities and nations, so times like these draw precisely on our academy's purpose.
We have developed systems to help the Caribbean region cope with environmental and health emergencies through close collaboration with the governments and relevant regional agencies responsible for disaster responsiveness and public health. Over the past year, together with these entities, we have been helping to shape public health policy and assisting with the implementing of anti-COVID-19 strategies to contain the virus within the region.
Through science, medicine, engineering and volunteerism, our staff and students are contributing their resources and expertise towards the fight against COVID-19 in our region.
The UWI COVID-19 Task Force has been key to The UWI’s intervention in managing the COVID-19 virus outbreak in the Caribbean, leveraging our knowledge and experts to provide clear and accurate information on the pandemic for public and private stakeholders.
