Injury Surveillance in Trinidad: An Accident and Emergency Based Injury Surveillance System at the San Fernando General Hospital

This paper presents an overview of data collected in the first three years of operations from 2002 to 2004 of an injury surveillance system.


Objective: Injuries are a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Injuries disproportionately affect people living in low and middle income countries, including the Caribbean;
however, little is known about the epidemiology of injuries in these areas. An Accident and Emergency (A&E) Department injury surveillance system was established at the San Fernando General Hospital, Trinidad and Tobago, to address this important data gap.
