Abstract: The Country Cooperation Strategy (CCS) is an integral part of WHO’s Country Focus Policy (CFP). The purpose of the CFP is to: a) optimize WHO’s contribution to health and development in countries; and b) empower countries to exercise more influence in global and regional public health. The CCS is being implemented by WHO across all Regions on a country-by-country basis. The development of a Country Cooperation Strategy for Trinidad and Tobago is crucial at this time in light of the increasing number of health development partners, the decreasing allocation of regular financial resources to support the work of PAHO/WHO at the country level as a consequence of the new Regional Program Budget Policy (RPBP), and the need for a more efficient and effective Technical Cooperation Programme. The broad consultative nature of the CCS, which allows contact with key development partners and national counterparts, is a tremendous opportunity to receive critical inputs that will assist in defining the strategic agenda for the medium term. This process will strengthen existing partnerships and alliances and create new ones; align the Strategic Agenda to the renewed in-country process of the CCA/UNDAF; and facilitate, together with other development partners, a collaborative environment that will lead to a coordinated approach for more efficient and effective cooperation, beneficial to the national health development process.
